Our Lawyers Defend You Against Internet Crime Accusations

Modern technology makes our lives easier and communication quicker. Computers have also created substantial opportunities for illegal transactions, which law enforcement has aggressively fought.

If you are suspected of computer fraud, a sex offense or a crime against a child, we recommend seeking our counsel before talking to law enforcement agents or allowing them to view any documents or computer hardware. After 33 years of successfully defending clients charged with crime in Maryland, we are confident in our abilities to develop the best possible defense strategies for our clients. Our Maryland criminal lawyers protect your rights during the investigation, after your arrest and throughout your trial.

Internet Fraud

Internet fraud involves the use of a technology device to misrepresent a material fact that induces another person to act and suffer resulting damages. Examples of Internet fraud include:

  • Computer hacking
  • Consumer fraud
  • Emailed scams for money
  • Fake charities
  • Fake Internet pharmacies
  • Identity theft
  • Investment schemes
  • Non-delivery of merchandise sold on the Web

Cyberstalking and Harassment

Police heavily patrol the Internet looking for predators. Unfortunately, in the process, they often ensnare innocent people for such serious crimes as:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Cyber harassment
  • Internet stalking
  • Possession or transmission of child pornography
  • Sex crimes against children

Computer Forensics

The law is just now beginning to catch up to the rapidly advancing technology world. For this reason, law enforcement agencies and prosecutors frequently violate the rights of the people they investigate. Police tactics often cross the line to the point of entrapment or warrantless searches.

Maryland criminal lawyers at LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton remain up to date on the newest laws and the latest computer forensic tools to investigate these cases. We challenge evidence gathered through unconstitutional means and develop a solid criminal defense to fight your charges. In addition, we force the prosecution to prove that you committed the crime, especially if your computer was available to multiple people or the source of the transmission is at issue.
