Internet Crimes

Prosecution of Internet Crimes

Depending on the circumstances of the case, an internet crime may either be prosecuted on the state or federal level. Many crimes occurring on the internet fall under the jurisdiction of federal law enforcement agencies, given that they "affect interstate commerce" by involving activities in more than one state. In either case, it is vital that you take immediate action to defend yourself against the prosecution. The attorney and investigators are actively working to gather evidence against you, and you cannot afford any delay in hiring legal representation to help you resolve the situation.

Internet Crime Defense Strategies

There are, fortunately, a number of different approaches to defending against internet crime charges. If, for example, you are suspected of a computer-related sex crime such as Internet Luring of a Child, you may be able to avoid a conviction by arguing that you were not aware that the other party was a minor. Similarly, child pornography charges can often be defeated by arguing that you did not know that the person depicted in the image was a child, that you were unaware that the files were downloaded to your computer, that you were not the person who was using the computer at the time of the offense or even that you were the victim of a computer virus.

The one thing you must not do when under investigation for an internet crime is to agree to speak with the investigators without having your attorney present to represent you. You are at risk of making statements that would incriminate you, and make it difficult or impossible to have you acquitted. Instead, politely insist on having a Colorado Springs criminal attorney from Clawson & Clawson, LLP present to advise you and represent you with the investigators.
