Extortion is a criminal offense which involves a defendant obtaining goods, services or money by the use of direct threats or threatening behavior.

Examples of threats for extortion purposes may include:

  • Threats to do bodily injury.
  • Threats to expose secrets and / or harmful information.
  • Threats to accuse the victim of a crime.
  • Giving money or something of value to influence the conduct of a person in a position of trust or influence.

Crimes of extortion generally are common in nature as they all attempt to illegally gain money, property, or services by means of intimidation, threats, bribes, or character vilification. Other crimes which may sometimes be associated with extortion may include bribery, blackmail, and in cases which are of a physical nature, assault and / or battery.

While bribery and blackmail are completely different crimes in nature, they can both be contributing elements of in an act of extortion.

Extortion using Bribery involves giving money or something of value to influence the conduct of a another who occupies a position of trust or authority. Concurrently, the person accepting a bribe has also committed a crime.

Extortion using Blackmail involves threatening another person's reputation or organization by means of potential disclosure of harmful or sensitive information that could be damaging if released or made public. It does not matter if the information used in blackmail is true or false.

The crime of extortion should not be confused with the crimes of robbery, lobbying, or corruption:

  • Robbery is the crime of taking another's possession or possessions by the use of force.
  • Lobbying is not a crime but can lead to a bribery charge (a form of extortion).
  • Corruption involves the persuasion of legislators and is a separate crime from extortion.
