Computer Crimes Defense Lawyers
There are many different types of computer crimes which fall under computer hacking or cyber crimes. Usually this means that the offender has accessed restricted or confidential files without the proper authorization. This can overlap with many other types of white collar crimes including computer fraud or credit card fraud. The offender can use illegal access to find and steal personal information including credit card numbers, access codes or PINs. Computers can sometimes be used to create realistic credit cards.
Computer crimes should be taken seriously. Most of the time, they are prosecuted in federal courts and as a result the sentences can be severe. Punishments for minor access to restricted information can result in up to 10 years imprisonment. This does not include the additional sentencing that would occur as a result of related crimes such as identity theft or fraud. Federal computer crimes are usually investigated by the FBI. They make great efforts to find and prosecute as many cyber crimes as possible which makes it even more important to find the best criminal defense to fight against them.
