I am lawyer George F. Hildebrandt. With more than 30 years of white collar crime defense experience in the Syracuse, New York, area and other areas of New York, I know what it takes to successfully challenge public corruption charges.

What Is Public Corruption?

Several different behaviors can fall into the category of public corruption. Some reasons you might be accused of corruption are:

  • Someone alleged influence peddling, stating that you gave or accepted a bribe.
  • The public was allegedly deprived of your honest services as an elected or appointed official.
  • You allegedly received or channeled kickbacks for you, your family member's or an associate's business as a result of favors associated with your public role.

The allegations leading to charges of public corruption may put your career and freedom at risk.
