Defining Computer And Internet Crimes
Many people are unclear about what a computer crime might look like. This may be because it is a general term that can include different types of illegal acts, from selling drugs to theft. Examples of common charges include:
- Identity theft, including credit card theft
- Selling illegal drugs online
- Internet sex crimes, including solicitation
- Fraudulent web sites
- Child trafficking and child pornography
- Computer hacking and phishing
Because the internet crosses state boundaries, these offenses can easily trigger federal laws. If you face federal charges, you will need an attorney familiar with the federal court process. Clarissa has extensive experience practicing in federal court and knows what it takes to manage a federal case.
The Intersection Of Cyber Crimes And Sex Crimes
As you can see from the above list, many internet crimes involve sex offenses. When you are accused of a sex crime, your entire future is at stake. You could face prison time, the breakdown of family relationships and placement on the sex offender registry. Too often, people simply do not understand what is legal and illegal on the internet.
Clarissa will help you understand the charges you face and the best way to fight them. She may employ forensic computer experts or other professionals to help build your case.
