Were You Accused of An Internet Crime?

Laptop - internet crimes defense in Georgia

There is nothing more shocking than hearing a knock on your door and finding the authorities outside, being handcuffed and then taken into custody and accused of an internet crime. State and federal police agencies are working together to stem the tide of internet crime and have established new, high-tech units that work to identify people who are engaged in any form of internet crime, including sex crimes such as possessing, producing or distributing child pornography to identity theft and others. Any criminal activity that involved the use of a digital device could be broadly termed an "internet crime."

Your particular situation is unique, and should be evaluated by an experienced legal professional before you make a decision about your plea or speak with any other person about your case. You may have been under investigation for months and your phones may not be secure.

Potential Defenses Against Computer Crimes

Every case has unique facts and evidence. You may have had your computer, phone or other digital devices seized by law enforcement. Were your rights violated in any action taken by the police or other agency? A full review of the facts can help our internet crime lawyer to determine your best strategy to defend against the internet crime charges you currently face. Your computer, phone or other device may have been accessible by other parties, or evidence was planted on it remotely. These are very real possibilities, and could be pivotal in the development of the case for your defense.

Common Types of Internet Crimes

Under the Georgia Computer Systems Protection Act, you are subject to severe penalties for any incursion (hacking) into state communication, public transportation, sewage, water supply, gas, electricity or other public utility service or related service. The statute also outlines several types of offenses committed with a computer or other type of digital device.

These include:

  • Computer theft
  • Computer trespass
  • Computer invasion of privacy
  • Computer forgery
  • Computer password disclosure
  • Other similar computer-related crimes

Penalties imposed for these crimes are as high as $50,000 in fines and 15 years in prison. The transmission of data with the use of an individual's name, a registered trademark, logo or other official identifying mark that falsely identifies the sender as being part of that organization is also a crime, and carries penalties under state law. The person may also be subject to a civil lawsuit later, and be forced to pay restitution. The Computer Pornography and Child Exploitation Prevention Act protects minors under the age of 16 years.

Charges can be filed for the possession or sharing of visual depictions of minors containing the following:

  • Sadomasochistic abuse
  • Sexual conduct
  • Sexual excitement
  • Sexually explicit nudity

If you are believed to have possessed or distributed nay such images, you will facing charges for a very serious felony crime, and if convicted, part of the penalty will include the requirement that you register as a sex offender, once released from state prison.
