Reading Internet Crime Attorney
Internet Crimes in Pennsylvania
In this fast-growing digital world, there are now many types of cyber or internet crimes. The penalties for internet crime convictions are severe and far-reaching. Seemingly innocent activity can easily become the focus of federal or state computer crime task force investigations, which can ultimately lead to prosecution. These crimes can include Cyber-stalking, impersonating another person on-line, identity theft, harassment, fraud, investment scams, credit card theft, gambling, fraudulent sale of items on the internet, possession of child pornography, phishing, and computer theft or trespass.
Depending on which crime you have been charged with, you may have a statutory defense available to you. As such, you need a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the quickly changing landscape of internet criminal law. Also, if you reasonably believed you had permission of the authorized owner to engage in the conduct you are accused of, or you did not have the requisite intent to commit the crime you are accused of, the charges could be dismissed and/or reduced to a lesser offense.
