Cybercrime Attorneys in Orlando
45+ Years of Combined Legal Experience On Your Side
In the digital age of interconnected computer networks, servers, and handheld devices, criminal statutes were quickly created making it illegal to do any number of things. Federal criminal violations — found in Title 18 of the United States Code — broadly defines many activities as cybercrimes, some of which are not so obvious. For example, it is illegal to damage a computer you do not own.
Damage in terms of the law can be construed as:
- Deleting information
- Stealing files
- Changing data
- Inputting malicious code
- Accessing a computer without express permission or in excess of the permission you have
Due to the vagueness of the law, federal investigators can bring cybercrime charges against parties who often had no idea they were even skirting the law.

How Typical Cybercrime Investigations are Conducted
Cybercrimes are strongly pursued by federal investigators. They will exercise their abilities and connections to dig into otherwise unseen data and information, such as a catalogue of internet protocol (IP) addresses and files in hidden folders to find you and what you may have accessed. Unique codes of devices, IP addresses, and other data can allow investigators to pinpoint where cybercrimes originated.
After deciding upon a list of probable suspects, investigators will move in to try to get additional evidence to warrant an arrest. In-person investigations will likely be conducted, and they may also try to seize hardware, such as your computer. To help protect your rights and good name, you should always insist that investigators produce a court-approved warrant before allowing them to take or enter your personal property. And you should never speak to an investigator without counsel. This can ultimately result in jail sentences up to 10 years under penal statute.
