Marietta Computer Crime Attorney

Charged with an internet crime?

The internet has become one of the most commonly-used mediums for crime and is also one of the hardest areas to prosecute. As technological advancements increase the rate of globalization and connections amongst people, more and more criminals are using computers and the internet in the commission of their crimes. Some of the most common types of computer crimes include:

  • Identity theft
  • Credit card fraud and other theft crimes
  • Online solicitation of minors
  • Child pornography
  • Internet sex crimes
  • Cyber stalking
  • Hacking

In response to the increasing amount of crimes committed using the internet, numerous local and federal agencies have created cyber-crime units dedicated specifically to investigating, arresting and prosecuting computer crime offenders. This means that should you or your loved one be facing an internet crime allegation, you face aggressive and powerful prosecution. Many computer crimes are federal offenses that are handled by federal agencies such as the FBI. If you are convicted for a federal offense, you could face time in state prison and have to pay thousands of dollars in fines.
