Types of Internet Crimes Charges Our Firm Defends Clients Against
The phrase “internet crime” refers to a broad range of criminal offenses that occur through the use of the internet, a computer network, or computers. Many internet crimes also fall within the definition of a “cybercrime.” At Agre & St. John, a federal internet crimes attorney can help you if you’ve been accused of internet crimes such as:
- Identity theft
- Accessing computers or networks without authorization (hacking)
- Phishing, or using fraudulent emails or websites to induce victims to provide passwords, access to financial accounts, or personally identifying information
- Theft of internet service
- Altering computer data without authorization
- Cyberattacks, including spreading viruses or conducting denial of service (DoS) or distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks
- Copying or unlawfully transferring protected computer data

- Credit card fraud
- Money laundering
- Possession or transfer of child pornography
- Solicitation of minors through the internet
- Internet extortion
- Unlawfully recording through webcams or microphones

While many internet crimes are prohibited by state law, many cases get prosecuted at the federal level because the federal government has jurisdiction over the internet. Federal prosecutors will most commonly handle large-scale internet crimes involving multiple victims or targeting corporations or the federal government. The federal government will also prosecute internet crimes that occur across state lines or national borders. For example, if a perpetrator targets victims in other states or countries or if the perpetrator transfers data (such as child pornography) across state or national borders, the federal government will usually take up the prosecution.
