Cyber crime is a term that just about everything is familiar with these days. The Internet has changed many things about how we live, including criminal law. Today, both Federal and State law enforcement are active in the enforcement and investigation of crimes that occur in cyber space or with the use and assistance of computers. It is one of the fastest growing areas of concern for law enforcement these days.
Some common internet or cyber crimes are Internet Luring, Enticement of a Child, or 18 U.S.C. 2252 charges. Both the State and Federal authorities are active in this field.
I have over 12 years as a practicing attorney. My background in criminal law is extensive including stints as a former State Public Defender, State Prosecuting Attorney, and a former Special Assistant United States Attorney. As a Public Defender and Prosecutor I handled a wide variety of cases, including murder, serious violent crimes, sex crimes, white collar crimes, and cyber crimes.
As an Assistant Prosecutor, I was selected to run a prosecution unit that dealt with cyber crime. My duties included prosecuting child pornography crimes as well as other crimes that occur through the use of computers, such as Internet fraud.
During my tenure as a cyber crime prosecutor, I was selected to attend specialized training in the prosecution of cyber crimes as well as training regarding the law in this new and evolving aspect of the criminal code. Along with specialized training, I was made a Special Assistant United Stateís Attorney with the specific task of handling cyber crimes in both State and Federal Court.
I have handled cyber crimes as both a Prosecutor and Defense attorney and I understand the intricacies of these types of cases. Unlike many criminal matters, cyber crimes often involve investigative subpoenas, search warrants, expert computer analysis, as well as intricate legal arguments. These cases are not like other criminal cases, and they require a detailed and comprehensive review by a skilled attorney.
If you are accused of a crime that involved the use of a computer, whether that allegation is being investigated by the State or Federal Government, it is crucial to have an attorney representing you who knows how these types of cases are handled. Time is of the essence in these situations, so donít hesitate to call Miller Leonard, PC.
