Dallas Internet Crime Lawyer

Representation for Cyber & Computer Crimes

While the internet has become an amazing tool that facilitates connection, commerce, and personal education, it is also a forum in which crimes are frequently committed. Law enforcement agencies, on both a local and federal level, have struggled to efficiently adopt legislation targeting internet crimes. Their efforts, however, continue to increase.

As a result, individuals who face internet or computer crimes, or who have been charged with offenses that involve the use of the internet, face invasive investigations, relentless prosecution, and devastating criminal penalties.

Common internet crimes include:

  • Internet sex crimes, which can include online solicitation of a minor, child pornography, sexting with a minor, sextortion, revenge porn, and more.
  • Cybertheft, including credit card fraud, phishing schemes, identity theft,
  • Online piracy
  • Cyberstalking or cyberbullying
  • Hacking and other computer security breaches

As law enforcement agencies tighten their grip on policing the internet, new laws have been enacted to directly address some of the most concerning and threatening internet crimes. From child pornography, sex crime solicitation, fraud, and various theft crimes, laws relating specifically to the internet have proven successful in gaining convictions. In such a complex and ever-evolving technological landscape, however, errors by law enforcement officers are common.

Using Experience to Handle Complexities

Among the many complications that arise with the intersection of crime and the internet, anonymity is one of the most concerning. Prosecutors have difficulties proving that a specific person committed an internet crime and defense strategies structured around this idea often hold their weight in court. On the other hand, the internet enables people to connect to others across the country and the world. As a result, crimes that cross state lines can be prosecuted as federal offenses.

Penalties for Internet Crimes

Many of the penalties for convictions of these offenses are quite serious, involving hefty fines and incarceration in a state facility. For example, if you are facing a misdemeanor charge, you could see up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine. If your charge is a first-degree felony, this can involve much longer jail time.

Federal crimes are decidedly more serious, and as such, the penalty for conviction of a federal internet crime is going to be significantly worse, with steeper financial sanctions and extended prison terms.
