Criminal activity involving use of the Internet is an area of increased focus for Texas law enforcement and federal authorities. Whether alleged wrongdoing is financial or sexual in nature, many people accused of "cybercrimes" face prosecution in U.S. District Court, where complex sentencing guidelines and extremely specific rules of procedure apply.

Dedicated To Identifying And Executing The Best Defense Strategy For You
Nearly all Internet crime prosecution efforts hinge on evidence gathered through the seizure of computer equipment. Consequently, any arrest resulting from a police investigation or government agency "sting" operation must be carefully evaluated to determine whether the accused person's Fourth Amendment rights were violated. If you have been contacted as part of an investigation — even if you have not yet been charged — you should contact a qualified criminal defense lawyer as quickly as possible.
