Miami Internet Crime Lawyer

What is an internet offense?

Computer and internet technology continue to reach extreme technological advances on a yearly basis. Today, virtually every aspect of our daily lives involves computer technology; therefore, it would be only natural to assume that criminal activity would pour over into the internet and computers would be used as a means of committing such crimes. Florida Statutes Title XLVI, Chapter 815 details all computer-related criminal offenses in Florida. This can include short title, offenses against intellectual property, trade secrets and other offenses against computer users.

Chapter 815.06 details the types of offenses against computer users. For example, a cyber-crime could access another user's information without their permission for the purpose of using that information for financial gain. It could destroy or damage a computer system, such as with a virus, or even interrupt a governmental operation (Section 2B3).

Today, cyber-crime is under the close scrutiny of the Federal Bureau of Investigation as they have taken the lead in the national effort to investigate high-tech cyber-crimes such as cyber-based terrorism, computer intrusions, online sexual exploitation and cyber fraud. To stay abreast of cyber-based criminal activity, the FBI actively shares information and intelligence with both the private and public sectors. If you are presently under investigation for a cyber-crime, you could have a large government entity such as the FBI closely tracking your movements.

As you can imagine, law enforcement and the FBI have a wealth of manpower, financial resources, as well as computer forensics to unearth and reveal unscrupulous activities involving hardware, software and the internet. In fact, cyber-crime has gained such national attention that cyber-crime is tracked and detected on the state, federal and international levels.

Cyber-crimes encompass a broad range of criminal activities including but not limited to the following:

  • Child pornography
  • Financial theft
  • Espionage
  • Malware (malicious code)
  • Cyber-stalking
  • Information warfare
  • Phishing
  • Bank fraud
  • Internet Pornography

Avoiding an Internet Crime Conviction

This is only a short list of cyber-crimes, there are many more. All of which can involve various types of identity theft, financial theft and any other types of interstate or international scams. Today, cyber-crime has taken such astronomic proportions that parents, teachers, non-profit agencies, as well as government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and the FBI have taken unprecedented steps to detect and put a stop to cyber-crime.

If you are facing charges for cyber-crime, whether the computer was a target, or if the police think you used a computer to commit a "traditional crime," you will need aggressive legal representation to go head-to-head with the prosecution.
