Your online activity may be considered an internet crime

Millions of people, including many in Pennsylvania, frequently engage in online activities. Some use the internet for business, others for pleasure and social networking, while still others may access various websites and documents for educational purposes. Those who log on to public websites are advised to choose their online activities carefully so as not to participate in anything that may cause them to be suspected of committing an internet crime.

Law enforcement agents often monitor particular websites, especially when they believe there are illicit activities involving minor age children. Also, in many situations where someone is suspected of unlawful money transactions, police may obtain a search warrant to access a personal computer or cell phone to review recent online histories. Merely being accused of an online offense, however, does not constitute guilt.

Anyone arrested for an internet crime has the right to fight any and all charges in court. To do so, a first logical step in the process often includes contacting an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss the situation. There is much an attorney can do, even before formal charges have been filed, to scrutinize police investigation processes to determine whether any personal rights have been violated.

Once an arrest has been made and charges filed against a client in Pennsylvania, an attorney can help a defendant explore all options that might be available toward a positive outcome. An internet crime may carry severe penalty under conviction, depending on the circumstances. To avoid worst case scenarios, an accused party may contact PennLaw, LLC for guidance.
