Defending Against Computer Fraud Charges

Internet and computer crimes are being heavily prosecuted by both the state and federal justice systems. Computer fraud is a broad area of fraud, encompassing any crime involving the use of a computer. This broad category can include:

  • knowingly accessing a computer without authorization in order to get data, financial information, consumer information, information involving interstate or foreign communications, or medical records,
  • accessing a government computer system without authorization, and
  • fraudulently buying or selling goods online.

Computer crimes can carry heavy penalties and, because almost every aspect of life today involves a computer, prosecutors often use these charges in association with other accusations.

Effective computer fraud defense involves both technological and financial investigations. As an experienced attorney, George Murphy has the resources at his disposal to provide his clients with quality criminal legal representation, successfully defending these specialized cases.
