Fresno-Clovis Internet Crimes Attorney
Valley Criminal Defense Attorneys
One fact is certain: the United States Government monitors internet activity daily. Whether an individual is simply “surfing the net” or downloading content through peer-to-peer file-sharing programs, or communicating in a chat room, law enforcement surveillance should be assumed present, and there is no anonymity in an individual’s of his or her computer. Based on internet surveillance and monitoring, federal agents investigating internet crimes can and do obtain search warrants to seize computers. And, contrary to common belief, deleting a file or content from a computer does not make it disappear from the hard drive. Federal agents investigating internet crimes possess the computer programs, time, and funding to retrieve data thought deleted or even destroyed.
Computer hacking, fraud, credit card fraud, identity theft, internet extortion, investment fraud, Ponzi/pyramid schemes, investment fraud, lotteries, internet auction fraud, phishing/spoofing (forged electronic documents), and spam are some of the charges that can all result in an investigation and potential prosecution for federal internet crimes, or cyber-crimes.
Internet crimes such as acquiring, possessing, and distributing child pornography over the internet often carry mandatory minimum sentences of prison and lifetime sexual registration as a sex offender. It is not uncommon for a curious individual merely looking at images on the internet to find themselves under investigation and indictment for internet child pornography crimes. The potential consequences to your freedom and public standing can be disastrous.
