New York City Internet Crime Defense Lawyer
What is a computer crime?
Internet crimes are committed when the internet is used as a means to commit a wide range of different crimes such as fraud, extortion, hacking, identity theft and cyber-stalking, which can often lead to real-life
sex crimes. This area of crime has been rapidly growing in virtually every sector since the Internet has found more and more widespread use in many different areas. Cybercrimes involve complicated technology, and thus it is critical to make sure that your
defense attorney has sufficient experience and success in defending these types of charges before going any further.
Fighting Cybercrime Charges
In many cases, an internet crime related charge may be applied in addition to other charges that were committed in relation to theft crimes,
drug crimes and
white collar crimes. Due to the dynamic nature behind this technology, the laws that can be applied may be out-dated, and law enforcement may find it challenging to appropriately pursue those who are suspected of computer crimes. Special issues regarding jurisdiction, such as in cases where the footprint of a crime must be traced through sovereign nations, can significantly slow or even stop the pursuit of law enforcement.
