Cybercrimes are among our nation’s most common — and complicated — legal issues. Local police departments and federal agencies have created special “cyber units” to hunt down predators and criminals online. These authorities also lure likely suspects into taking action that results in criminal charges and prosecution.
If you’re facing cybercrime charges — such as those stemming from identity theft, online stalking, cybersex offenses, or cyberterrorism, among others — you can be certain that prosecutors and investigators will prosecute your case aggressively. The penalties are serious. Those convicted find themselves facing heavy fines and prison sentences, as well as reduced employment and housing prospects.
We can help. The attorneys at Conaway & Strickler, P.C. are recognized among the field’s leading cybercrime defense lawyers. Founding attorney Meg Strickler is co-chair of the iTechlaw Cybercrime Committee, a panel charged with developing guidance on cybercrime matters for lawyers around the world; she has lectured on cybercrime in Bangalore, Brussels, Tokyo, Paris and other global locales. Indeed, our firm understands the severity of cybercrime charges, and is prepared to defend its clients in state and federal court.The Consequences of Cybercrime
Many individuals don’t realize that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) possesses significant power in matters of the internet. This means that you might be subject to prosecution in federal court and exposed to its severe sentencing guidelines. In addition, courts at every level are keen to make an example of cybercriminals. They mete out strict punishments in the hopes of deterring others from committing such offenses. This is why it is important to reach out as quickly as possible to a qualified defense attorney.Our Firm has a Global Reputation for Success
