A Strong And Effective Defense Against Corruption Charges

Corruption Charges image

In the glare of the public spotlight, allegations of corruption on the part of an elected official, misuse of pension funds or self-dealing by a fund manager, abusive tactics on the part of a police officer to coerce a confession, or bribery on the part of a government employee can take on a life of their own.

Charges of “misconduct in office” have been brought against city officials in Detroit but also against mayors in small towns, and employees in municipal and county offices facing charges of corruption in the issuance of government contracts.

Corruption charges require a strong and effective defense. At the Law Office of John Freeman, we defend public officials and employees facing Michigan criminal charges for “misconduct in office,” and the charges that frequently accompany this corruption charge, such as:

  • Bribery
  • Conspiracy
  • Misappropriation of funds
  • Money laundering
  • Kickbacks
  • Embezzlement
  • Police misconduct
  • Election fraud

We are aggressive, dynamic legal advocates determined to prevail on behalf of our clients in court against charges of bribery, conspiracy, election fraud or corruption in Michigan criminal court.
