What Are Computer Crimes?

Computer crime, also referred to as cybercrime or e-crime, involves the use of a computer and the internet. The federal government has over 40 statutes that govern the prosecution of computer-related crimes. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1984 (CFAA) was explicitly enacted and codified to address federal computer-related offenses. The USA Patriot Act has amended the CFAA numerous times and has made conspiracy to commit a computer-related crime an offense as well.

The crimes themselves are generally divided into three categories, which include:

  • Illegally obtaining computer hardware and/or software
  • Crimes committed by using the computer network or devices
  • Crimes that target the computer network directly, such as installing viruses, Trojan horses, logic bombs, and spyware on another’s computer

What to Look for in a Defense Attorney

If you are convicted of a federal computer crime, you could be facing a felony charge. Since there is such widespread use of the internet, computer crime may include many different criminal offenses, such as identity theft, fraud, sex crimes against children, money laundering, wire fraud, and hacking. While nothing trumps experience when looking for a criminal defense attorney, it is also a good idea to look for someone with the capacity to spend a lot of time investigating all aspects of your case. At The Law Offices of Barton Morris, our computer crimes attorneys in Michigan always work as a team. This means that multiple attorneys will work together on your case, bringing fresh perspectives and creative ideas to your defense.
