What Is Considered An Internet Crime?

An internet crime is any criminal offense or illegal activity that involves the use of a computer or network, or one which targets a computer or network. There are both state and federal laws that apply to crimes involving the internet. Computer intrusion, fraud, and piracy are among the key concerns of the FBI when it comes to internet crimes.

There are several different types of offenses that are classified as “internet crimes,” including:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Virus spreading
  • Email “phishing” for identity theft
  • Illegal weapon trafficking
  • Copyright violations
  • Online stalking
  • Internet bomb threats
  • Child pornography
  • Online solicitation of a minor
  • Financial extortion
  • Fraud and embezzlement

Every Criminal Charge Has Legal Defenses

Internet crimes are unique because the crime occurs in cyberspace. The investigation centers around the “paper trail” that may involve emails, text messages, fund transfers and other electronic communications. The prosecution must prove criminal intent and they must prove that the accused was the actual perpetrator. Can the government prove who was using the internet or whether someone else was using your account.

Patrick Lauer is a board-certified criminal trail specialist who has taken more than 200 cases to trial. He is always prepared to defend clients in court if necessary to fight a conviction. In many cases, he has been successful in pre-trial advocacy to get unfounded charges dismissed or to get offenses reduced when they have been overcharged. He will explore every avenue to protect your rights and your future.
