Providing Exceptional Defense To West Michigan Clients
In the past decade, computers and Internet access have become ubiquitous. Everyone has multiple computers, Internet-ready phones and tablets — and nearly every business and retail establishment offers free Wi-Fi Internet access. With this level of accessibility, the potential for computer crimes has skyrocketed. Law enforcement routinely seizes electronic devices even in criminal investigations not necessarily focused on computer activity. The electronic devices are forensically examined to look for any unlawful materials. Delete often does not actually delete, and materials accessed only once on an electronic device can be found in a forensic search. If you or a loved one was charged with a computer or Internet crime, it is crucial that you seek help as soon as possible.

Defending You Against Life-Changing Penalties
Computer crimes are typically divided into two categories:
- Computer sex crimes: A computer sex crime can entail solicitation of a minor for sex or possession, distribution or creation of child pornography.
- Fraud/hacking: An Internet fraud case can center on credit card fraud or identity theft. Computer hacking can entail email interception, phishing or other scams.
Depending on the specifics of your case, you might be forced to register as a sex offender if you are convicted. This is a severe penalty that could change the course of your life — impacting where you are able to live and work. You need a knowledgeable, driven defense attorney who will fight by your side.
