As computer technology and the Internet evolve, they present new opportunities for criminal activity. In many cases, people may be unaware that certain activities may violate a state or federal law.
At the Law Office of Rob McKinney in Nashville, Tennessee, we defend people facing a wide range of so-called cyber crimes, including:
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
- Cyber stalking on Facebook
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Releasing computer worms or viruses
- Online auction fraud
- Wire fraud (use of the Internet or other forms of communication in the commission of a crime)
Computer crimes can be charged in state or federal court. Both the FBI and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) have extensive resources for retrieving and studying computer evidence involved in these crimes. They have on-staff computer forensic experts available to evaluate the computer and analyze the facts. We may retain our own expert to evaluate the government expert's work and to perform an independent review of the evidence.
Defense Of Sophisticated Or Straightforward Computer Crimes
Our law firm has the capability to ably defend people involved in sophisticated computer-related offenses, like hacking into an organization's computers to steal classified information or trade secrets. We also aggressively defend clients facing charges for more straightforward crimes, like credit card fraud or online auction fraud.
