California Cyber Crime Laws

The current expansion of the internet and computers has resulted in a whole new breed of laws related to computer crime.

These crimes range from possession of child pornography to hacking and financial crimes such as identity theft or fraud when computers are involved. Often these crimes are filed in federal court, as when communication systems are involved, the federal government usually has jurisdiction.

The federal court system is entirely separate from the state court system.

It has some of the toughest prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in the country, including the FBI and ATF, as part of its network. When facing a federal charge involving a computer crime, you need to enlist the assistance of an experienced criminal lawyer in Dublin, familiar with the federal court system at once.

If you face accusations of perpetrating computer fraud, you will require legal expertise to navigate this challenging criminal case. However, just like in other criminal cases, the obligation of proof rests upon the prosecution to confirm you committed these computer crimes, not on you to prove your innocence.

An experienced Dublin criminal defense attorney can usually arrange favorable plea agreements or receive an acquittal based on a lack of convincing proof. Learn more about computer fraud by contacting the expert criminal defense team at the Law Office of Ivan O.B. Morse for the best legal representation in the Alameda County era.

What Is the Punishment for Computer Crime?

The punishment for computer crime or internet crimes ranges widely with various fines and sentences. For instance, a computer crime misdemeanor sentence can result in minor fines, possibly up to $1,000 or more. It is opposed to felony convictions that carry fines that exceed $100,000.

Law Office of Ivan O.B. Morse Cyber Criminal Legal Counsel

Individuals charged with computer crimes are in serious legal trouble.

Prosecutors will forcefully prosecute any illegal actions involving using a computer. However, the evidence in such cases is highly technical, and proving that the individual charged was responsible for the crime often requires the testimony of a computer expert who will provide the evidence to the jury.

In addition, as there are many ways that prosecutors can plant false information on a computer, including child pornography, it is likely necessary that the accused call defense experts to expose the reasonable doubt that the client is responsible for the crime.
