Is vendor penalized?

The July 31 story County worker who took bribes sentenced reported that the employee was sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $12,500. One thought: Is it not illegal to offer and/or pay bribes? I seldom, if ever, read that the vendor (contractor) has been subjected to any criminal sanctions whatever. Surely this is not the case. The dearth of information about any sanctions against these individuals and their company paying bribes leaves one to wonder.
