Aggressive South Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer 

The majority of people utilize a computer at least one time a day, but what the public uses for news and entertainment can simply be used for illegal purposes by computer hackers. While technology advances so does the opportunity for hackers to perform unlawful acts. Unfortunately, technology too makes it progressively harder to identify and convict the correct person.

Theft crimes which may be associated to computer or cybercrime may include:

  • Unauthorized Access
  • Internet Fraud
  • Scamming
  • Phishing
  • Spoofing
  • Hacking
  • Identity Theft
  • Grand Theft
  • Spam
  • Internet Hoaxes

When a computer and the internet are used to commit fraud, wire fraud charges are the most probable to be pursued by the prosecution. Wire fraud is a very serious federal crime that involves using the internet to convey information that is intended to deceive others in order to attain their wealth or assets. Since this crime usually involves crossed state lines or national boundaries, the federal government will likely take legal action and investigate these offenses.

Penalties for Computer Crimes

  • If a person is convicted of wire fraud in federal court, he/she may face up to 20 years in prison and large fines.
  • If a financial organization is targeted or affected by this computer crime, the defendant may face up to 30 years in prison and/or a $1 million fine.
