I have worked on numerous computer hacking cases and I understand the detailed technical nature of the laws associated with these crimes. If you have been accused of illegally obtaining access to information, you need an experienced computer crimes attorney.
The Internet has changed how people communicate and conduct business. So many opportunities have sprung from the existence of the Internet, but not all of them are legal. More and more these days we hear about nefarious characters gaining access to our bank accounts and other personal information. It seems nobody is immune to risk.
Notorious hacking groups have received widespread attention and the federal government is on a mission to make an example of Internet criminals. The government uses every resource available to investigate and prosecute computer hacking crimes. Often times, those put in the spotlight and accused of criminal behavior are merely pawns in a bigger game.
FEDERAL AUTHORITIES WANT YOU PUNISHED, EVEN IF YOUR CRIME WAS UNINTENTIONAL
It is easy for IT professionals to make mistakes. Unfortunately, these mistakes can lead to an accusation of crime. When Internet crimes involve interstate data – and most do – they are charged at the federal level. An innocent mistake can result in serious federal charges. Not to mention Federal Sentencing Guidelines include sentencing enhancers that increase punishment based on how many people are affected by a crime – which in the Internet world can be billions.
Something as simple as accession another person’s email account can form the basis for a criminal prosecution in either state or federal court. I’ve handled cases in which a spouse makes the mistake of hacking into his or her significant other’s email. Though it seems as if it would not be a big deal, you can be prosecuted for such behavior.
If you or someone you care about is under investigation for computer hacking or any Internet crime, you must act fast. You need an experienced attorney to protect your rights.
