Bribe Receiving in the First Degree
Bribe Receiving in the First Degree, New York Penal Law 200.12, is slightly different than the lesser levels of this crime. While NY PL 200.12 requires that a public servant agree to receive a benefit to influence his or her decision on a particular matter, this matter must involve an investigation, arrest or some other law enforcement action involving a person who has committed a class “A” felony. A”B” felony, Bribe Receiving in the First Degree is punishable by up to twenty five years in state prison.
