Maryland Federal Internet or Computer Crimes
Technology is a wonderful thing; cell phones allow us to connect with people wherever we are and the internet allows us to access a wealth of information with a few clicks of a button. However, that ease of access can also lead to a world of trouble if you are charged with a federal computer crime in Maryland. Because both case law and technology changes at such a rapid pace the attorneys at KaiserDillon PLLC spend a significant amount of time keeping track of these changes to help their clients respond to federal internet crime charges in Maryland and elsewhere.
We understand how easy it can be to become part of a situation that may be classified as internet based criminal activity in Maryland. We also understand how scary the thought of an FBI criminal investigation is. Many of our clients are concerned about how an investigation or charge relating to Maryland internet crimes will affect their family, their personal relationships and their careers. At KaiserDillon PLLC we can explain the investigation and criminal prosecution process for Maryland internet crimes and can help you move on with your life as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately for many of our clients the FBI has made a dedicated effort to prosecute individuals who they believe are misusing the internet in some way. As a result, investigations, arrests and prosecutions for internet crimes in Maryland have skyrocketed. The FBI is currently pursuing a large number of Maryland internet crimes including the following types of cases:
* Identity theft: In addition to traditional means of pursuing individuals suspected of Identity theft the FBI has increased their prosecution of individuals using false identities or gathering other people’s personal information over the internet.
* Illegal use of Peer-to-Peer networks: The FBI has begun to look closely at the different peer-to-peer networks and has prosecuted individuals associated with these networks for a number of crimes including copyright infringement, child pornography and obscenity, as well as computer hacking.
* Creation and use of viruses and malware: Viruses and malware can cause significant headaches for anyone whose computer has been infected. They can also be used to gather personal information or obtain money for removal of the virus. As a result the FBI has increased the resources it has dedicated to viruses and malware prosecution.
While these cases are not always widely publicized, the FBI is pursuing federal internet crime cases in Maryland aggressively and it is not uncommon for someone convicted of an internet crime in Maryland to face significant time in prison and expensive fines. Each federal internet crime carries its own possible penalties, making it impossible to know exactly what you are facing without discussing your particular situation with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
