Internet Crime

Shrewsbury, New Jersey Criminal Trial Lawyer Defense of Internet Crimes

The Internet—a word only recently added to our dictionary—drives our economy and expands our means of communication. E-Bay, E-trade, E-mail—we can buy, sell, manage accounts, or message instantly and without regard to geography. At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall in Monmouth County, our criminal defense attorneys are, however, concerned about the rights of those accused of using the Internet for criminal purposes. If you are under investigation for a computer crime, and would like to speak with a member of our firm, please contact our Shrewsbury office and arrange a free consultation with a lawyer with the appropriate experience.

When is activity on the Internet a crime?

There is confusion about legal and illegal uses of the Internet. Is it a crime to purchase and sell stolen goods or prohibited materials, if you had no way of knowing the source or nature of the goods? If an unsolicited pop-up appears on your computer monitor and you delete it, a record of the image will remain on your hard drive—can it later be used to convict you of a crime? Is it an invasion of privacy to e-mail a picture to a group of friends? What are the definitions of “assault” and “terroristic threats” when applied to use of the Internet? These questions affect modern criminal law.
