Internet Crimes Confident & Fearless Defense

Denver Internet Crimes Lawyer

Aggressive Defense for Cyber Offenses

Internet crimes, also called cybercrimes, involve the use of computers, electronic devices, and/or computer networks. Because more and more people go online to conduct transactions, there has been an increase in such offenses. Generally, individuals or groups that commit internet crimes use various tactics to hide their identities and make tracking them difficult, making these very complex matters. State and federal law enforcement agencies have set up their own cybercrime units to investigate, identify, and prosecute alleged offenders. Still, even with their resources, just because a law enforcement agency suspects someone of an offense that does not mean that person is the actual culprit. They may have unwittingly got caught up in a scheme or not realized that they had downloaded unlawful information.

Because people can do just about anything online – whether lawful or unlawful conduct – there are numerous types of cybercrime offenses a person can be charged with.

A specific section of the Colorado Revised Statutes (CRS 18-5.5-102) is concerned with cybercrimes.

It provides that a person commits an offense when they:

  • Unlawfully access a computer or computer network or system
  • Access a computer or computer network or system without authorization to:
    • Carry out a fraud scheme
    • Obtain something of value, such as money, property, or services
    • Commit theft
  • Damage, destroy, or interrupt a computer or computer network or system
  • Install unauthorized software on a computer or computer network or system to damage, destroy, or interrupt processes
  • Install software that can interrupt ticket sales
  • Solicit a minor to engage in prostitution
  • Use a skimming device to unlawfully obtain credit or debit card information
  • Encode an altered card with stolen credit or debit card data

The conduct listed above specifically pertains to offenses committed under Colorado's cybercrime law, but it's not the only type of behavior that can be pursued as an internet offense.
