Steven Louth Law Offices
Computer crimes are in the news quite often these days, and in fact they are prosecuted quite aggressively by prosecutors. Because the concept of computer crime is relatively new, many prosecutors may feel like it is an area in which they can make names for themselves. Computer crime is actually a fairly broad category of crimes, which includes many different possible charges across a spectrum of illegal activities, much in the same way that the phrase “violent crime” encompasses a broad variety of illegal activities. Making computer crime complicated is the fact that, in many cases, the people who commit the crimes are not actually aware that what they are doing is illegal. However, if you have been charged with any crime, or if you believe that you are being investigated for any crime, contact experienced computer crimes defense attorney Steven Louth immediately to protect your rights.
Generally speaking, there are three types of computer crime:
Crimes where computers are the target.
In many cases, computer crimes involve attacking a computer or a computer network. Whether the goal is to mine information from the target or to manipulate the operation of a computer system, these kinds of crimes involve breaking into or hacking a computer without permission.
Crimes where a computer is the weapon.
Also very common, these crimes involve using a computer to commit a more traditional crime in a more technologically advanced way. Using a computer to access other people's personal information, or to illegally transfer money, or to obtain illegal products are common and aggressively prosecuted computer crime.
Crimes where the computer is a storage unit.
In many cases, using a computer to store certain files or information may be a crime. For example, storing pornographic images of minors or illegal files on a computer would be considered computer crime.
Because prosecutors take computer crime very seriously, and prosecute very aggressively, it is especially important to protect your rights. In some cases, law enforcement officials may look through a person's computer without following the proper protocols; if this happens, you need an attorney who understands the law, and can have any illegally obtained evidence suppressed so that it can't be used against you.
