Internet Crimes in Hartford

Seek the Defense of a Hartford Criminal Attorney

Internet crimes are committed when the internet is used to commit a criminal offense in Connecticut. The criminal offense can include theft crimes, fraud crimes, piracy, sex crimes, harassment, and many others. Depending on the specific case the charges for internet crimes can be made at the state or federal level. If you have been charged or arrested for an internet crime, seek an aggressive Hartford criminal defense lawyer in order to avoid the harsh repercussions that may follow.

Some of the internet crimes that a Hartford criminal defense attorney from our firm may be able to help you fight against include:

  • Downloading child pornography
  • Distributing child pornography
  • Luring or Solicitation of minors
  • Hacking another person's computer
  • Accessing another person's email or records
  • Credit card fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Phishing
  • Stalking
  • Harassment or bullying
  • Internet sex crimes

Our criminal defense attorneys have experience dealing with internet crimes ranging from minor white collar crimes to serious internet sex crimes. The penalties for internet crimes vary according to the type of offense along with the criminal record of the defendant. Punishments can include prison time, large fines, restitution, community service, probation, and any other penalties the judge deems necessary.

Penalties for Internet Crimes in Connecticut

When it comes to fines there can be a wide range of penalties because of the various types of internet crimes. If the offense is charged as a misdemeanor there can be fees of a few hundred dollars up to $1,000. These would be considered minor compared to if the internet crime is charged as a felony wherein the fines can exceed $100,000. Jail or prison sentences can be given according to the degree of the felony but for a serious internet crime the penalty can include a prison sentence of 20 years or more.

Child pornography crimes are considered severe and could come with that kind of jail sentence but other internet crimes can be punished by any length of prison sentence less than 20 years. Probation sentences are often given either as a combination with jail and fines or as a separate penalty. The length of the terms will vary but they are generally at least one year.

Requirements to Follow While on Probation

Probation sentences come with regulations that the person must abide by in order to successfully complete their probation. While on probation you will be expected to maintain gainful employment the entire time. You must also report regularly to your probation officer as scheduled. During probation you cannot commit any crimes or your probation can be revoked. You must also pay all court fees and fines that are required of you. While on probation you could be required to perform community service and you may also be subject to drug tests. Others are ordered to attend a specific counseling program.

If someone who commits an internet crime is put on probation they will most likely have to follow some or all of these rules. If a person on probation violates the orders they may have to complete their probation sentence in jail. The consequences that can follow even minor internet crimes are harsh so make sure you fight for your rights by having an experienced Hartford criminal defense attorney by your side.
