  Internet Crimes
As the Internet becomes a facet in everyday life, it has become progressively more important to protect people against possible criminal activity via the World Wide Web. The FBI has established a special force, also known as Internet agents, to dedicate their skill solely on Internet crime. Due to the severity of the situation, state and federal law enforcement agencies have made the investigation of Internet crimes against children one of their main concerns. As the need for protection grows, officials are developing new techniques to detect crimes against children online. Additionally, new techniques and software are being developed to detect other forms of Internet crime as well.

Internet crime comes in many forms, including:
  • Child Pornography
  • Identity Theft
  • Online Child Solicitation
  • Internet Fraud/Cyber Fraud
  • Internet Gambling
  • Solicitation of a Minor on the Internet
  • Scams and Advance Fee Fraud
  • Online Pharmacies and Drug Sales

Child Pornography
You may be prosecuted for downloading or being in possession of pornographic or obscene materials. Charges involving possession or distribution of child pornography can destroy your future. You may face extensive prison time, astounding fines, and a record that will follow you throughout your life.

Online Child Solicitation
Online child solicitation refers to the attempt to convince a minor to engage in a sexual act via the Internet. Law enforcement agencies have set up sting operations to trap the alleged by posing as an underage child. The right attorney will work to prove that the manner was, in fact, illegal entrapment. Therefore, the evidence gathered can not be used against the accused.

Internet Gambling
Online gambling is one of the largest online economic activities to date. For this reason, the line between legal and illegal may appear to be construed at times. For this reason, you may need a competent lawyer to work with you to gather the proof needed to prove that no crime has been committed.

Identity Theft
Identity theft is defined as the act of stealing another person’s personal information to acquire financial gain, secure employment, or elude criminal charges. The personal information taken can range from Social Security numbers, addresses and phone numbers to bank account and credit card information. Identity theft is one of the hardest online crimes to prove therefore law enforcement, prosecutors, and legislators have worked to fight identity theft cases.
