SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

What is Internet crime all about?

Internet crime, also known as cyber crime, is nothing to take lightly. Our New York readers, along with those in the other 49 states, should become familiar with this type of crime and the laws associated with it.

As the name suggests, Internet crime details criminal offenses committed via the Internet or another form of technology. FindLaw describes this in greater detail, adding the following:

"But while cyber crime is a relatively new phenomenon, many of the same offenses that can be committed with a computer or smartphone, including theft or child pornography, were committed in person prior to the computer age."

When people use the Internet to communicate, they often forget that there are laws that govern what they can and cannot do. It is simple to make an error in judgment, since you are not communicating with others in a face-to-face environment. For this reason, something you would never say or do in person could slip out via the seemingly more impersonal nature of Internet or another form of technology.

There are many types of Internet crime, including but not limited to: computer crime, cyber bullying, sexting, and identity theft. All of these crimes are treated in a serious manner, both on the state and federal level.

There is no way to attach a "size" to the Internet, which makes it difficult for cyber crime to be pinpointed. Furthermore, it frequently leads to a situation in which a person is charged with a crime he or she did not commit. If this happens, the accused will find him- or herself working hard to clear one's name and avoid trouble with the law.
