Aggressive Computer Crimes Defense Representation
Wisconsin law states that a person must willfully, knowingly, and without authorization commit a cyber or computer-related crime in order to be prosecuted for such an offense. Attempted or inadvertent actions to access, steal or tamper with secure data is not necessarily subject to prosecution. Our criminal defense lawyers will work closely with you to establish the details of the matter so that we may properly advise you on the next steps. We defend against computer crimes including, but not limited to:
- Unauthorized computer or computer network access or usage;
- Interference or interruption of access to a computer or computer network;
- Theft of data by computer or another electronic device;
- Improper use, access, disclosure or modification of secure data or programs;
- Releasing a virus to a computer or network;
- Falsifying source of emails;
- Hacking into a secure computer or network; and
- Spamming a computer, network or email system.
Sometimes, it is necessary to go to trial, but it depends on the facts surrounding the alleged computer offense. There have been cases where the injured party requests for the matter to be handled in civil court rather instead of a criminal case. We are prepared to defend in criminal or civil suits and will work to dismiss, reduce the severity of the charge and seek the best possible outcome.
