Examples of internet crimes and how different they can be

Internet crimes are incredibly diverse, which makes it especially important for those who are accused of such crimes to know exactly what legal options they have. To understand exactly how much ground these crimes can cover, consider the following examples of online crime:

You can defend a tax evasion charge

Tax evasion can get you into deep trouble with the law, but it is possible to be accused of this crime without meaning to participate in it. For example, if you misreport your income accidentally, then you didn't intend to defraud the government. If you can prove that fact, then you could defend yourself successfully.

What are the drug manufacturing laws in Pennsylvania?

Drug manufacturing is typically seen as a misdemeanor in Pennsylvania. Despite that, being charged with this crime and being convicted can still lead to a prison sentence. Some misdemeanors carry prison sentences of up to three years and fines of up to $25,000. There are certain situations where you may be able to help yourself even if you are guilty of the crime by pleading guilty in advance in exchange for a lesser charge, but this is something that you should discuss with your attorney before you make the decision to do so.

Priest facing child pornography charges to be extradited

Being accused of a crime as serious as uploading or viewing child pornography is not only a possibly life-changing event, but one that could influence your life even if you aren't found to be guilty. It's important to defend yourself from the start; understand what you do or don't have to comply with and what the officers or detectives need before they can view your personal belongings. Your attorney should be present before you're interviewed, so you know when you have to answer or not.
