Defense for Computer Hacking Crimes in Cleveland

The Relatively New and Serious Crime

With the growth of technology and the expansion of the internet, the door has been opened for a new genre of crimes. Cybercrimes, also known as computer crimes, occur over the internet or through other means of technology. These offenses can carry serious penalties and charges, especially when sensitive private or financial information is involved.

What Is Considered Computer Hacking?

When an individual gains access to another's computer system or information without authorization, it is considered hacking. The crime also involves the intent to steal, alter, or corrupt the data of another. Hacking can often be connected to many other crimes, such as internet-terrorism, identity theft, and stalking. Whether a hacking crime involved stealing information from a private network of an organization or an individual, a person accused of this crime is facing serious repercussions.

Due to the fact that the Federal Communications Commission regulates the internet, you will likely be facing federal charges, which carry much steeper penalties.

Hacking can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, and possible penalties include:

  • Severe fines
  • Jail or prison time
  • Possible restitution to victims
  • Probation
  • Mandatory community service
