Increasingly, the State and Federal Courts are charging individuals with crimes that pertain to the internet. Perhaps the most common crimes alleged are the online solicitation of a minor to engage in sex and the acquisition of child pornography. Many fraud crimes now alleged make use of the internet, and it is not unusual to be charged in Federal court with the allegation of "hacking" into computer systems.
Not only do offenses involving the internet raise many complicated legal issues, they usually raise numerous complicated technical issues. In addition, in Federal court there are often enhanced penalties if the internet is alleged to have been employed in the commission of the crime.
Broden & Mickelsen has extensive experience defending individuals charged with computer crimes. Twice the law firm has defended clients accused of hacking in Federal court at trial, and twice the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty.
