What Is Theft of Honest Services?

Most commonly referred to as honest services fraud, the theft of honest services is a federal white collar crime. Specifically, this criminal offense concerns “any scheme or artifice to deprive another of the intangible right of honest services,” as defined in the federal mail and wire fraud statute (United States Code Title 18 Section 1346).

Honest services fraud cases typically involve a bribe or kickback paid to someone for a favor that could tangibly impact a third party to whom the person accepting the bribe owes a duty.

For example, consider a situation where a parent may wish for their child to attend a university, but their child doesn’t have the test scores to get in. If the parent successfully bribes an admissions official for a spot, both of these parties are engaging in honest services fraud. This happens because the admissions official owes a duty to the university to seek students with the best grades and test scores; accepting a bribe to admit a student with lesser qualifications violates that duty.

Penalties for Honest Services Fraud

The theft of honest services is covered under the federal fraud by mail or wire statutes. As a consequence, a conviction can carry penalties that include a fine of up to $250,000 and as many as 20 years in state or federal prison with three years of supervised release. It’s important to note that each instance of wire or mail fraud is a separate offense.
