Focused Defense Lawyers For Complex Computer Crime Charges
What are cybercrimes?
Cybercrimes are criminal acts that use a computer as an instrument to further illegal ends, such as sending explicit photos, committing fraud, or violating privacy.
With the ease of access that we all enjoy through the internet today, law enforcement agencies and prosecutors are devoting resources toward computer crime investigations. Possession of images on a computer device is not the only issue that can lead to substantial felony charges. The ability of the government to investigate online activity, combined with the social awareness of computer crime activity, has led to many criminal charges involving computer evidence.
