Cyber Crimes Attorney in Miami
Effectively Defending Individuals Facing Serious Charges
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. As technology advances, so does the opportunity for hackers to perform unlawful acts. Unfortunately, technology makes it progressively harder to identify and convict the correct person.
Theft crimes which may be associated with computer or cyber crimes may include:
- Grand theft
- Identity theft
- Internet fraud
- Internet hoaxes
- Unauthorized access
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 which 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.
If a person is convicted of wire fraud in federal court, they 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. These penalties are severe and far-reaching. This is why it is highly recommended that you contact a skilled cyber crimes lawyer in Miami if you are facing these types of criminal charges.
