Chicago Internet Crime Defense Attorney
Defending Internet Crimes in Illinois
Our population is addicted to the internet, and almost everyone in the Chicago area is online for at least a portion of time each week. The expansion of this form of communication has led to a huge increase in certain types of crimes that are generally termed "internet crimes."
Internet Crimes include the following criminal activities, such as:
- Possession of child pornography
- Distribution of child pornography
- Wire fraud
- Bank fraud
- White collar crimes that include the use of a computer in the commission of the crime
In fact, these crimes have become so prevalent that special task forces have been created both on a state and federal level to identify those who are using the internet to commit criminal acts. The penalties are often harsh, and the crimes are often charged at a federal level and will be tried in federal court. If you have been arrested and charged with any internet crime, it is critical that you contact a Chicago criminal defense lawyer at once.
