Extortion by an Officer

In the undertaking of his duties appears to only be a class 4 misdemeanor.

Argument could be made this statute is only applicable to extortion for greater pay. Since citizens who'd be seeking to bribe, or susceptible to extortion (say to prevent arrest) would not be capable of increasing the officer's pay, rather only providing a collateral source of income, statute may not be applicable to the run-of-the-mill extortion situation.
