Evidence supported the bribery convictions even absent evidence of a quid pro quo. (264)
Defendants were convicted of multiple counts of bribery under Penal Code section 641.3. One was an insurance broker and the other a casino executive. Contrary to the defendant’s claim, the prosecution did not have to prove that any payment made to the casino executive was tied to a specific insurance transaction.
