Minneapolis Internet Crimes Attorney

Facing Cybercrime Charges in Minneapolis? Call Our Lawyers 24/7!

With the rapid growth of technology over the last few decades, internet crime or “cybercrime” now represents one of the fastest-growing areas of the law. No matter if you’re commenting on a friend’s social media post or downloading content in a peer-to-peer sharing program, there is no guarantee that the United States government will turn a blind eye to your online activities, even if you delete potentially incriminating files. In some cases, you may even be wrongfully accused of a computer-related crime based on someone else’s online activity.

If you or a loved one face charges involving internet crimes, we cannot encourage you strongly enough to contact our Minneapolis team at Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. The laws governing internet activity are still relatively new – and they are always changing. Not all criminal defense attorneys are equally equipped to defend your interests effectively and aggressively, but with over 100 years of experience, our lawyers can fight for a fair outcome on your behalf.

For more information on how we can help you fight cybercrime charges, call (612) 444-5020.

What Counts as an Internet Crime?

Under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1984, many different crimes can be classified as computer or internet crimes. From child pornography to credit card fraud and theft, many of these are existing criminal violations that are simply made easier by the advent of the internet. In addition to crimes that take place with the help of the internet, however, there are also several offenses related to computers specifically, including hacking crimes, computer damage, and computer theft.

Because cybercrimes cost the government millions of dollars every year now, even a first-time offense can carry serious penalties. Additionally, these crimes are often prosecuted in federal courts, as the internet crosses state lines. As federal crimes, such charges may carry even harsher sentences.

Cybercrime is a new area of criminal law, and may include:

  • Identity theft
  • Distributing/creating computer viruses
  • Internet phishing
  • Online solicitation of a minor
  • Child pornography crimes
  • Hacking
  • Credit card fraud
  • Computer hacking
  • Investment fraud
