Computer Crime Attorney in San Francisco
Arrested for an internet offense?
The internet has brought much to humanity in terms of increased economic prosperity and opportunity, greater access to information and other valuable resources. The criminal element of society has likewise found their share of illegal opportunities online, now using computers to achieve their goals. Law enforcement has poured seemingly endless resources into the prevention and arrest of computer crimes, yet criminals remain a step ahead of the authorities in many areas. In spite of this, law enforcement has successfully carried out many operations designed to curb criminal activities with respect to child pornography,
internet pornography, credit card fraud and others.
Investigating computer crime in the United States has seen great progress in recent years. However, law enforcement still has a long road to travel before becoming truly effective. Legislation often lags behind real-time issues related to computer crime, and law enforcement may be left unable to act in the face of a crime. Adversely, many operations are carried out hastily, which can result in the unethical collection of evidence which may be deemed admissible. Other mistakes are commonly overlooked by attorneys who may not be familiar with computer crime laws. This is a problem for accused defendants who rely on the support of a legal professional which is why it is so important to consult a San Francisco criminal attorney at the firm with experience in the areas that apply to your case.
