Internet crime, sometimes known as cyber crime, is the fastest-growing type of crime in the nation.
For this reason, the number of laws related to Internet crime is growing as well.
There is great appeal to Internet crime because of the anonymity it provides. The Internet also defies borders, preventing state governments from doing such things as issuing search warrants, subpoenaing witnesses or arresting suspects.
Common internet crimes include hacking, credit card fraud, identity theft, phishing, embezzlement, child enticement and solicitation, illegal pornography, bullying and more. As the Internet proliferates around the world, the list of illegal activity grows daily.
While the severity of Internet crime varies depending on the offense, the majority of internet crimes are a felony. Even a first-time offense can result in a minimum mandatory sentence of five (5) to fifteen (15) years in prison.
Convictions are increasing because state and federal law enforcement entities have access to very sophisticated resources such as computer experts who can run “stings” and know how to recover deleted information from hard drives.
Law enforcement agencies, however, frequently overstep their legal bounds in their zeal to convict. Many individuals find themselves wrongly charged or unjustly accused.
It is these mistakes that Mr. Deckard uncovers and exploits as he provides a zealous defense for those accused of internet crimes. Mr. Deckard has years of experience navigating through the treacherous cyber-waters with a lifeboat – your lifeboat.
Typical defenses Mr. Deckard uses are to refute the legalities of the actions of law enforcement; to cast doubt on your involvement or knowledge of the crime; to question the validity of prosecution witnesses; and to argue improperly-obtained evidence should be inadmissible in the court case against you. The facts of circumstance of each case points toward the defense strategy undertaken.
These issues, and the other numerous elements in this extremely complex legal field, should not be taken lightly or handled by an attorney with limited familiarity in this area of legal defense. Mr. Deckard has extensive experience, excellent resources and the tenacity to see your case through with the best chance of a favorable outcome.
