Internet And Computer Crimes Are Often Federal Crimes
Any time you use a computer, you leave a cyber trail. The internet is not local or statewide but across the country and the world. This is why many internet crimes are commonly prosecuted at the federal level – particularly charges related to solicitation and child pornography.
Internet crime is a niche area of the law. Because it is digital it is always changing. Internet crimes are frequently investigated by federal agencies and are prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. It is therefore important that you enlist the services of an attorney who has the federal-level experience and understands what you will need to have for the strongest defense possible. At Ryan Pacyga Criminal Defense, we believe we are that firm.
Law Enforcement Has Extensive Resources To Follow Your Computer Trail
At Ryan Pacyga Criminal Defense, we are not new to cybercrime law. We understand the law and how it applies to computer crimes. We can help if you have been charged with any type of white collar or corporate crime as well as:
- Identity, service and information theft
- Credit card fraud
- Trafficking in passwords
- Information theft and hacking
- Phishing, skimming and cyber attacks
- Many types of fraud
- Internet child pornography and solicitation of minors using the internet
As attorneys with extensive experience in a broad range of criminal defense matters, we can advise and guide you through the process so that you understand every step and every option you have.
A Prepared Defense Lets You Be In The Driver’s Seat
It can feel as if you are in a free fall when it comes to facing federal charges. By understanding the charges and your options for a strong defense, you have a greater control over the outcome. Working with the evidence we will endeavor to show that you are being:
- Falsely accused
- Not the person who committed the crime
- Entrapped or were not aware what you were doing
- Charged with evidence that was seized illegally and cannot be used
We know that internet crimes can be as simple as a few clicks. As this area of technology is constantly evolving, the law can be unclear as to what is and is not allowed. We will use all available resources to show your side of the story.
