Computer Fraud

As the government tries to keep pace with the extraordinary advancements in computer technology, more and more statutes are being enacted to combat computer-related fraud. At present, there are numerous state and federal laws specifically designed to allow prosecutors to pursue harsh punishment – in some cases up to 20 years in federal prison – for various forms of computer fraud. If you are facing charges of computer fraud, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible in order to ensure protection of your Constitutional rights.

Criminal Trademark and Copyright Infringement

Trademarks and copyrights are forms of intellectual property that are protected under U.S. federal law. If you infringe someone else’s trademark or copyright (i.e. use it without their permission), you can face both a civil lawsuit and federal criminal charges. In criminal cases, prosecutors most often go after sellers of forgeries and counterfeit goods. However, anyone involved in trafficking infringing artwork, products, or other goods or services can face huge fines and the possibility of spending several years behind bars.

Drug Trafficking

Websites like the Silk Road and other illicit online marketplaces have led federal investigators and prosecutors to crack down on Internet drug trafficking. From importing foreign prescriptions to buying and selling controlled substances, any online activity involving transactions in illegal drugs is likely to lead to a host of federal criminal charges. If you have been accused of an Internet-related drug crime, or attorneys will fight vigorously to have your charges dismissed.

Hacking

Certain hacking crimes can result in a sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison. Along with illegal trafficking, counterfeiting, and various forms of computer fraud, hacking is a crime that is currently high on the list of the federal government’s top priorities for enforcement. Violators who get convicted are facing lengthy prison sentences, restitution, and other serious consequences.

Identity Theft

There are various forms of identity theft, and they all carry substantial penalties for those who get convicted. From stealing a credit card to using someone else’s identity to make terrorist threats against the government, accusations of identity theft can change your life forever. At Oberheiden, P.C., we rely on our experienced criminal defense lawyers and former federal prosecutors who use aggressive negotiation and trial strategies to fight charges of identity theft for our clients.

Online Pornography

If you have been arrested or are under investigation for having any involvement whatsoever with child pornography, you are facing a life-changing situation. Accusations of child pornography can last a lifetime, and once you’ve been identified as a possible offender, the government’s prosecutors will not let up until you are behind bars. Our attorneys can protect your legal rights and fight vigorously to keep you out of federal prison.
