Cyber Crimes Attorneys in Gainesville

Are you being investigated for or have you been charged with a computer crime?

Computer crimes, or internet offenses, are fiercely prosecuted on both the state and federal levels in Florida. Florida was the first state in the nation to enact a cyber crime law, and the state aggressively seeks convictions for these offenses. Florida Statute 815.06 designates some of these crimes as first degree felonies, which are punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $10,000. Additionally, the federal government prosecutes cyber crimes under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Since almost every cell phone and computer are used in or affect interstate or foreign commerce and communication, most modern devices fall under the CFAA. A conviction for a computer crime could severely damage your reputation and leave you ineligible for future employment.

Unfortunately, many individuals who are charged with cyber crimes did not know they were breaking the law. Alleged offenders may find themselves facing lengthy prison sentences and fines reaching hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is important to immediately seek the legal advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney to try and avoid an indictment or minimize the negative consequences of the charges against you.
