Types of Technology Crimes
Just about any crime that incorporates technology as a means of carrying out an illegal activity can qualify as a technology crime. Common examples include:
Internet Fraud: Fraud has adapted extremely quickly to the online environment. Advance fee fraud, non-delivery of merchandise fraud, fraudulent sales, lottery scams, phishing, and work at home scams are all common.
Hacking: You don’t have to be a computer genius to be a hacker, at least in the eyes of the law. California has laws against accessing, altering, copying, deleting, or using data on a computer or computer network without permission.
Identity Theft: There are several ways that technology can be used to steal someone else’s personal information with the intent of using it to commit a crime. Examples include phishing scams, hacking, and illegal computer access.
Cyberstalking: Stalking does not have to be done in person. It can also be committed using electronic media such as email, text messages, or online chat messages, in which case it will be charged under the separate statute on cyberstalking.
Online Piracy: Illegal copying, selling, or sharing of copyrighted media such as music, movies, and books can be prosecuted as a violation of the No Electronic Theft (NET) Act.
Child Pornography: Many child pornography allegations involve access or distribution via the internet.
Defending Against Technology Crimes
Obviously, your technology crimes defense will have to be tailored to the specific statute you have been accused of violating. But in general, one of the most effective strategies in a technology crimes case is simply to argue that there is insufficient evidence to prove that you committed the crime. For example,, perhaps there is not enough evidence linking you to the criminal activity or insufficient evidence to show you had any criminal intent.
