Cyber Crimes On The Rise

Internet crime is one of the fastest growing areas of criminal activity. It is estimated that 10 percent of all Internet-related crimes are committed in California. As quickly as technology changes, so do the laws. If you have been charged with any type of Internet crime, you need an experienced cyber crime attorney to turn to for advice.

The Internet has enhanced our lives by changing the way we work and communicate. What makes the Internet useful (the ability to communicate quickly with anyone in the world) has also opened the door to a tremendous amount of criminal activity. Web crimes continue to proliferate even as laws are put in place to protect victims.

Types of Internet Crimes


Most Internet crimes fall into two categories: financial-based and sex-based. Examples of financial crimes using the Internet include:

  • Identity theft
  • Fraud (credit card, banking)
  • Illegally downloading music or videos
  • Phishing

Being accused of an Internet sex crime is a serious matter. The specific penalties and consequences of a web sex crime conviction will vary depending on the nature of the offense. The most important step you can take to preserve your rights and protect your future is to contact a qualified Internet sex crimes attorney. Internet sex crimes fall into these categories:

  • Downloading or possessing illegal sexual content or child pornography
  • Sending explicit sexual content to others over the Internet
  • Using the Internet to solicit sexual activity
