Facing Allegations Of Internet Or Computer Crimes?
The world of computers is the setting of many people's everyday life in countless arenas, including social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Emails have become a preferred method of communicating. navigation systems and location software is captured by cellphones. Cellphones are literally small computers holding vast amounts of personal data.
With so many human interactions taking place by computer, it should come as no surprise that criminal charges often involve the use of computers, including:
- Hard-drive data storage
- Internet activities such as social media postings
- Purchase and sale transactions
We are former prosecutors who left our positions as prosecutors in the 1980s, before computers had overtaken our daily lives. Yet we clearly understand how defense strategies for noncomputer-based crimes also apply in cases of cyber crimes. We are also big believers in the value of sophisticated criminal forensics.
