Top-Rated NJ Attorney Defends Clients Accused of Cybercrimes
Protecting the rights of New Jersey defendants charged with Internet offenses
Technology is part of everything we do these days. For that reason, it is no surprise that many laws have been written to regulate what we do online. There are federal regulations banning traditional crimes that now take place online as well as laws that ban new activities that didn’t exist before the Internet. At the Law Office of David Jay Glassman, we defend clients against the full range of state and federal cybercrime charges. Our firm combines more than 40 years of criminal defense experience with our dedication to understanding emerging areas of the law. From our offices in Hackensack, Marlton, Newark and New Brunswick, our legal team handles cases throughout New Jersey.
Understanding federal computer crime charges
Many traditional crimes can be committed with the assistance of a computer. Other crimes only exist on the Internet. Some of the most commonly prosecuted cybercrimes include:
- Hacking. Accessing a computer or intrusion into a network without permission is considered hacking. Similar crimes involve stealing or destroying data or using a virus to attack computer systems.
- Fraud. Computers are used in a wide range of fraudulent schemes and scams.
- Identity theft. Stealing someone’s identifying information for sale or personal use is a serious crime. This can be accomplished through hacking, phishing or other means.
- Blackmail. Online blackmail schemes often make use of illicit materials or illegally obtained data, such as the membership information released in the Ashley Madison hack.
These crimes have a combined cost of more than $400 billion annually. Our firm represents New Jersey clients charged with a variety of computer crimes including those accused of spamming, illegal botnet use and offenses taking place on the Dark Web.
Discreetly defending you against charges of child pornography
Producing, sharing, downloading and storing sexually explicit material involving children are serious charges requiring a formidable defense strategy. These charges are often the result of unintentional actions or downloads, trapping innocent people along with serious offenders. Our firm represents those charged with these crimes as well as young adults and minors who are unjustly swept up in the craze of prosecuting people for sexting. Many young people don’t understand the consequences of swapping risqué photos on their phones and fail to realize that they can be charged with creating, sharing or receiving child pornography. We do everything we can to present your case in the best possible light.
Defense tactics to achieve an optimal result
To defend you against the charges you face, we have a wide array of tools at our disposal. Forensic experts can make sense of piles of data to show that you were not involved in a crime or could not have intended to commit the act you are accused of. In some cases, we are able to demonstrate that your computer was under the control of a hacker at the time of the alleged crime. We fight against overzealous prosecutors who attempt to lump all Internet users in the same categories as career criminals or child abusers. And most importantly, we include you as part of our defense team to devise the best possible strategy in your case.
