What To Do If You Are Accused of an Internet Crime

Today, there are a wide variety of cybercrimes that are increasing in the United States due to the pandemic. As a result, law enforcement agencies are under intense pressure to prosecute anyone they suspect of committing computer-related crimes as diverse as computer hacking or child pornography.

Due to the technical complexity of the Internet, people can be wrongly targeted by law enforcement during an investigation since scammers commonly use innocent peoples' computers to carry out or mask their own illegal activities. Additionally, investigators with little experience are not always prepared to fully investigate cybercrimes cases and may obtain evidence illegally.

If you are under investigation for an alleged computer or internet crime, then you need to immediately consult with an experienced lawyer to devise a strong defense strategy. Internet crime investigations can be extremely rigorous, which makes it easy for innocent people to get mixed up in a task force’s investigation, finding themselves the target of serious criminal charges.

Internet and cybercrime penalties can be very harsh and can result in lengthy prison sentences and/or expensive fines. Also, most crimes committed online can be prosecuted in both state and federal court. This is why is crucial to seek qualified legal counsel right away.
