If you’ve been accused of a computer or internet crime in Brooklyn, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. I’m going to walk you through everything you need to know about fighting these charges in Brooklyn’s courts.
First off, don’t panic. Take a deep breath. I know this is scary, but you’ve got rights under the law. A good lawyer can help make sure you get treated fairly. I’ve been practicing law for over 15 years in Brooklyn – I’ve seen it all and I know how to handle these cases.
Some of the most common computer and internet crimes I see accused in Brooklyn include:
The charges and penalties depend on exactly what you’re accused of doing. But some of these crimes carry felony charges that can mean years in prison. So you need an experienced lawyer to fight for you.
A lot of these cybercrime cases rely heavily on digital evidence. As your lawyer, my job is to scrutinize that evidence to make sure it 100% proves your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
For example, let’s say you’re accused of hacking into someone’s email. The prosecution might show that the hack came from your IP address. But IP addresses can be spoofed – I can challenge whether that really proves it was you.
Or if you’re accused of harassing someone online, I’ll look closely at the messages to see if there’s any doubt you actually sent them. I’ve gotten charges dismissed because the evidence wasn’t air tight.
Many cybercrimes involve speech – like making threats online or revenge porn. I can argue these are protected under the First Amendment right to free speech. There are limits, but the law has grey areas we may be able to exploit.
For example, in U.S. v. Stevens, the Supreme Court said animal cruelty videos were free speech protected by the First Amendment. So while revenge porn is awful, we may be able to argue it’s a form of protected free expression.
My goal is always to get charges against you dismissed completely. I dig deep into the case law and prior precedents to find any angle I can take to get the case tossed out.
For instance, in U.S. v. Auernheimer, a conviction under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act was overturned because the government used the wrong venue. I look for technicalities like this I can exploit.
Bottom line – I know how to get computer crime charges dismissed on procedural grounds before it ever goes to trial. That’s the best outcome possible.
If your case does go to trial, there are several strong defenses we can use. For example:
I build the strongest defense by fully understanding the facts of your case. My job is to create reasonable doubt you committed any crime.
If we can’t beat the charges entirely, my next step is trying to get them reduced. Getting a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor can save you from huge consequences.
For example, identity theft over $1000 is a felony in New York. But I can argue to reduce it to a misdemeanor by disputing the total financial impact. Even reducing prison time by a few months is a win.
I’ll also dig into your background and life circumstances for “mitigating factors” – reasons the judge should show leniency. Your clean record, family obligations, health issues, employment, and more can help move the needle for reduced charges.
If the police contact you, politely decline to speak with them. Say you won’t answer questions without your lawyer present. They may try to scare you into talking, but don’t fall for it.
Anything you say can be used against you, but nothing you say can help you. Let me handle communicating with law enforcement on your behalf once I’m your attorney.
A lot of people think you can’t get in “real” trouble for cybercrimes. That’s dead wrong. The internet is real life – online threats, hacking, identity theft, and other crimes carry serious real world felony charges.
These cases require an experienced Brooklyn attorney to protect your rights, freedom, and reputation. Don’t go it alone against trained prosecutors.
The bottom line is you need someone in your corner who knows Brooklyn’s courts, judges, and prosecutors. Someone who has gotten computer crime cases dismissed before. That’s me.
Don’t take chances with your life and career. Call me now for skilled and aggressive representation fighting these allegations. I offer free consultations, so you have nothing to lose. Let’s beat this thing together.
You can reach me at (555) 123-4567 or email@example.com. I’m standing by 24/7 to protect your rights and future.
Stay strong. With the right legal strategy, these are beatable charges.
