The possible repercussions of internet crime charges

In the digital age, there are a wide variety of online crimes that people are accused of, such as cyber bullying, identity theft, piracy and computer fraud, among others. At Joseph S. Friedberg Chartered, our law firm takes these charges very seriously and we understand how damaging they can be. Whether you live in Minneapolis or a small town in Minnesota, properly handling internet crime charges and understanding the consequences you may face is of the utmost importance.

If you are charged with an online offense, there may be a number of unique details surrounding your case. For example, some elements of alleged online activity may be exaggerated or untrue altogether. While some people think that online crimes are not very serious, these charges may present a number of serious repercussions, such as steep fines and federal prison. Additionally, accusations of committing an internet crime can completely shatter your reputation and standing in the community, create problems with your friends and relatives and even cost you your job. To make matters worse, you could have difficulty applying for a position in the future because of these allegations, which highlights how damaging these charges can be over the long run.

Sometimes, people find themselves facing online crime charges unexpectedly, such as those who were not aware that certain types of comments violated the law. In fact, even social media activity could lead to a federal prison sentence resulting in years behind bars.
