Last week on thIS blog we talked about phishing schemes and how these scams are aggressively prosecuted. While this is certainly true, it is important for Californians also to realize that all computer crimes are typically prosecuted to the fullest extent. Therefore, if you are being accused of an internet crime, you might be facing significant prison time, massive fines and a ruined reputation.
As our world becomes more digitally entwined, internet crimes become more common. However, since the digital world is so complex and difficult to understand, some Californians may find themselves facing allegations related to computer crimes. In order to properly defend against such charges, it is important to understand what some of these crimes entail.
Drug charges, especially those involving drug trafficking, are serious and threaten accused individuals with years behind bars and thousands of dollars in fines, if not more. A prosecutor's case in these instances, as with most criminal cases, will rely on the available evidence. So, when damaging evidence is presented against you, you certainly want to try to get it suppressed. Here are some ways that can be done.
A California middle school teacher is facing serious criminal charges after authorities allegedly found child pornography on his computer. The 58-year-old math teacher who was known as a strict teacher is now imprisoned, being held on $1 million bail. The Internet Crimes Against Children task force claims to have found the incriminating evidence after executing a search warrant at his residence. At this time, school officials have no reason to believe any students were involved in the incident. The accused teacher has since been placed on administrative leave.
