Oakland County Internet Crime Attorney
Types of Internet Crimes
The internet has become a widely used tool for individuals, business, governments, and other groups. As the demand for the internet increases, so do the potential legal issues involved, which is why the areas of internet and computer law are constantly evolving. If you are being investigated for an internet crime, or if you have been formally charged, it is important that you contact an Oakland County criminal defense attorney who will work diligently towards obtaining the best possible result in your defense.
Internet crimes vary widely in their character and severity. They can be prosecuted in state or federal courts, and include offenses such as:
- Child pornography (possession, distribution)
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
- Bank fraud
- Internet sales fraud
- Online investment fraud
- "Cyber stalking"
- Illegal purchase of prescription drugs
- Sex crimes (solicitation of a minor, enticement)
The penalties for internet crimes can include exorbitant monetary fines, probation, restitution to victims of the crimes, and incarceration in jail or prison. If a defendant facing internet crime charges already possesses a prior criminal history, or is being charged with a sex crime involving a minor, that defendant may be subjected to enhanced sentencing in the event of a conviction.
