Computer crimes require a strong criminal defense

Computers are an important part of most people's lives. People use computers for everything from work to play and from researching to socializing. Many Oregon residents may feel like they have all the knowledge they need about computers, the internet and technology. They may feel like they have nothing left to learn. They also may feel like computers offer a certain amount of protection, particularly online. Since the internet can be fairly anonymous, people may act differently than they would in person. In turn, people may engage in behavior that they otherwise would avoid if in the public eye.

However, many people don't realize that what they say and do on the internet can affect their public lives. It is possible to face serious criminal charges because of something that a person says or does online. Everything from cyberbullying to computer fraud can result in an arrest and charges.

Felonies are especially serious. People can face years in prison, large fines, probation and more if convicted on charges for something they would never have done face-to-face.

Anyone can make this type of mistake. And, police can overreact to things that have been said online. In these cases, a strong criminal defense can be key to avoiding serious penalties.
