Computer Crimes / Fraud / Forgery

Scott County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Computer crimes, fraud, and forgery are three criminal acts that can go hand-in-hand or they can be committed separately. However, fraud and forgery committed through a computer can result in multiple charges. For instance, an individual could create a fake check using a computer and forge the signature on that check. This act will result in multiple charges being brought against an individual and that can result in lengthy prison sentences, high fines, and even restitution. In fact, federal charges can be brought about in the case.

Experienced Computer Crimes Defense

Computer crimes occur when an individual uses a computer to commit a crime, such as creating a fraudulent document or committing forgery. The computer can also be used to commit crimes over the Internet, such as stealing someone’s login credentials to log into their bank account and steal their information.

Computer fraud is one of the most common and fastest growing computer crimes in the world. It is simply using information technology to commit acts of fraud. It is a crime to use any electronic device to misrepresent information or present fraudulent information with the purpose of deceiving. It is a very serious offense.

Fighting Fraud And Forgery Charges

Whether fraud or forgery is committed with or without a computer, these are two acts that can result in serious consequences, if convicted. As a matter of fact, they can be charged at the federal level and that requires the representation of a Minnesota criminal defense lawyer who has experience and who has had success representing clients at the federal level. If the case is tried in a federal court, the prosecution is going to be very aggressive because they want to secure the conviction. However, there are strategies that can be used to achieve a positive outcome in the case. The maximum penalties can be avoided and, in some cases, there are facts that show that the case should be dismissed. There are a number of possibilities in your case and your attorney will identify those possibilities.
