Crimes that happen over the internet are becoming more frequent and targeted in the news media and by law enforcement. Often called “cybercrimes,” they include any alleged criminal activity using the internet. From cyberbullying to hacking and identity theft, this is a broad area of criminal law that requires a very skilled and experienced attorney. There are many types of complex issues that can arise under state or federal charges.
I am criminal defense attorney Gene Barton. Having been defending clients throughout the Chickasaw County area since 1977, I am seasoned and highly knowledgeable in both state and federal laws.
Note: I cannot defend criminal cases in the city where I am a prosecutor, which is Okolona. I can defend cases in greater Chickasaw County and surrounding counties throughout Mississippi, as well as in federal court.
When someone is facing criminal charges that involve the internet, it is very possible that there could be several charges stemming from one incident. That is why it is so important to your case that your lawyer be able to handle a broad area of criminal law. The very outcome and success of your situation can depend on the experience of your attorney.
The Internet And Its Vast Range Of Criminal Charges
Considering the vast amount of information, communication paths and sources that are on the internet, it is no surprise that the charges resulting from it are vast. As a former public defender with more than 40 years of trial experience, I have the ability to effectively handle almost any computer or internet-related charge that could come your way.
Types of internet crimes can involve:
Financial and identify theft: From stealing credit card numbers, using someone else’s identity, filling out a fraudulent mortgage application online and more, this includes any type of fraud conducted on the internet.
Cybercrimes and viruses: Even if it is not meant to harm anyone, creating viruses and hacking are considered very serious crimes.
Juvenile crimes and cyberbullying: Unfortunately, we are seeing more and more instances of charges where juveniles and minors are accused of stalking, harassment or bullying over the internet.
Sex crimes, child pornography and solicitation: Within the realm of sex crimes, charges can be brought for alleged illegal activity using the internet to access child pornography, solicitation of a minor and more.
