Computer crime investigations and trials are exceptionally complex and require a lot of evidence, which means anyone fighting these charges will need an experienced and highly knowledgeable Vista computer crimes lawyer to challenge the evidence presented by the prosecution.
There are a wide array of crimes that can be performed on a computer, ranging from hacking to possession of child pornography to embezzlement to cyber stalking. Whatever crime you have been accused of committing on your computer, Peter M. Liss can help you fight the charges by providing a reasonable doubt to your guilt.
Many people wrongly assume the activities they perform on a computer and on the internet are private and anonymous, but your identity is not completely secret, even online. If you are suspected of committing a crime on the computer or on the internet, the police may seize the hard drive on your computer to find evidence against you. Do not be fooled into thinking that deleting items from your hard drive will protect you. Police investigators can and will uncover previously deleted material from your system. They can also subpoena the records from your internet provider to determine your identity.
The police may call you if they suspect you of a computer or internet crime. If you receive a call like this, immediately call a Vista computer crimes attorney to help protect your rights. If the police have seized evidence from you with or without a warrant, you will need your legal representative to examine their actions and determine whether the search and seizure was legal.
There are many different defenses for these serious crimes and each one will vary based on your specific case. If you have been accused of breaking the law on a computer, please call Peter M. Liss at (760) 643-4050 to discuss how to best defend yourself against these serious charges.
