Cybercrimes, also known as computer crimes or Internet crimes, are crimes that are committed primarily through the Internet. Common examples of these crimes include:

Cybercrimes may also include "traditional crimes" for which a computer was used. As society's reliance on Internet-connected devices increases, so too will cybercrime charges.

The Internet makes some crimes easier to investigate because there is always a digital footprint. However, it can be difficult to determine where the footprint leads. For example, a common question in cybercrime cases is not whether a specific device was used to commit a crime but, rather, whether the defendant was the person who used the device.

If you were charged with a cybercrime, speak with an attorney who understands how the Internet's strengths and weaknesses apply to the allegations in your case.

What You Should Do

  • Be respectful.
  • Calmly record the interaction.
  • Ask if you are free to leave. If you do not ask, the officer may think—and the judge may agree—that the interaction was consensual.
  • If you are free to leave, go! If you are not free to leave, do not answer any questions before speaking with your attorney.

What You Should Not Do

  • Do not physically resist arrest.
  • Do not become aggressive or confrontational.
  • Do not consent to a search. The Constitution does not apply if you consent.
  • Do not answer questions without first speaking with your attorney. Police are allowed to hold you for 48 hours and they may lie to you the entire time.
