If so, you could be facing jail time in state or federal prison. Unfortunately, many individuals who are charged with cyber-crimes did not know they were breaking the law.

Systems Breach | Illegal Internet Activities
Generally speaking, a computer may be the target of the offense, the tool used to commit an infraction or the storage device containing the evidence of illegal activities. Unless the prosecution can prove your computer is the one used to commit the crime and that you were the person who was operating the computer at the time of the offense, they will have a difficult time in proving guilt. Our attorneys will fight to have the evidence against you disallowed and can often negotiate with prosecutors to minimize the charges. Call us at 352.377.7800 to speak with an attorney about your case.
