Is bribery a felony?

I am being accused of bribery by a coworker who claims I engaged in all sorts of criminal activity, as well as conspiring with other coworkers against him. Hypothetically speaking, if I was charged with bribery, is it a felony charge?

    The common use of bribery is payment or consideration for value to a public official to obtain special consideration. It is always a felony when used in that context. I can not tell form the scenario given if that is the nature of the complained activity or if he is saying you may have induced someone at work to do something that he didn't appreciate. The latter activity may not be a crime anyway.

    Bribery is indeed a felony offense. HOWEVER, you cannot bribe a co-worker, unless he is a public employee, such as a state investigator or cop. In fact, your co-worker is guilty of EXTORTION, and could be put in prison for HIS actions. Let him know that!
