Computer / Internet Crimes
Computer & Internet Crime Lawyer
Have You Been Accused of an Internet Crime in Phoenix?
Computer and internet use has increased dramatically in the past ten years, and along with it, so too has the relatively new phenomenon of cybercrimes. The opportunity for all kinds of illegal actions has risen with the availability of computers and the global connectivity that the internet provides. Computer or internet crimes either involve the computer as a tool used to commit the crime, or as the final target.
In response to this growing concern, cybercrime units have been developed that work together at the local, state and federal level to prosecute these types of crimes. If you have been accused of a computer or internet crime in the Phoenix area, a defense attorney from Knowles Law Firm, PLC can help you battle your charges. Law enforcement aggressively pursues these types of cases, and prosecutors can be relentless in their pursuit of a conviction. Without fierce representation of your own, you may be left having to pay stiff penalties.
Types of Internet Crimes
The internet can be used to commit a number of different kinds of crime. Regardless of the type or severity of the crime, law enforcement is cracking down on this type of law-breaking, which can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the case.
Some of the most common and egregious crimes include:
- Identity theft
- Internet fraud
- Cyber terrorism
- Cyber extortion
- Credit card fraud
- Illegal downloading
- Computer crimes against a child
- Internet pornography
- Computer hacking
- Cyber stalking
- Internet sex crimes
A person charged may face multiple counts for the same crime if they are prosecuted at the state, local, and federal level. Penalties for a crime can quickly escalate whether your particular charge is a misdemeanor or a felony.
