A bribe is simply where one person offers or asks another person for money (or something of value) in exchange for that person doing, or not doing, a certain action. It sounds harmless especially if the bribe is rejected, but it is a very serious crime in Las Vegas that may carry felony penalties and mar your criminal record for years.
