Bribe Receiving in the Third Degree
A “D” felony punishable by up to seven years in state prison, Bribe Receiving in the Third Degree (New York Penal Law 200.10) occurs when a public servant solicits or merely agrees to accept any type of benefit (it need not be money) from another person. This public servant does so as part of an agreement that his or her actions as a public servant will be impacted or influenced by the benefit. Again, it is critical to note that the benefit does not have to actually be received, but merely an agreement to receive or accept the benefit is sufficient to satisfy NY PL 200.10.
