Charges & Penalties for Internet Offenses

An internet crime is a criminal offense that is committed online through the misuse of the internet. Due to the technological growth over the past several years, more and more people have discovered that it is easy to carry out crimes via the internet because it presents an anonymous, untraceable environment. People use this secretive environment to carry out a vast array of criminal offenses that range from illicit sex crimes to fraudulent theft crimes. Frequently committed internet crimes include, but are not limited to:

  • theft crimes;
  • identity theft;
  • internet scams;
  • pyramid schemes;
  • possession of child pornography;
  • solicitation of a minor;
  • fraud; and
  • credit card fraud.

Criminal Defense from an Attorney in Dallas

When it comes to internet crime charges, there are numerous defenses that must be considered. First, it is very come for computers to be used by multiple users. Just because a person owns the computer where the internet crimes may have occurred does not mean that the person committed the criminal offenses. In some cases, internet crimes are committed by another user or the computer is hacked online by a person the accused does not even know.

Second, when it comes to internet crimes, it is very common for evidence to be insufficient or unlawfully collected. When this happens, and law enforcement makes mistakes, the accused should not be charged with a criminal offense or face further persecution. An experienced lawyer will know how to review evidence that is being presented against you to determine if prosecutors even have a case or if you are even responsible for the online crimes you are being accused of committing.
