Have you been charged with Federal Computer Hacking? If so, we are here to help you!
If you have been accused of or charged with computer hacking, you may not be aware of all of the laws that are in play. A long list of statutes incorporate provisions relating to computer hacking and any misstep can result in an indictment on serious federal charges.
The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act initially applied only the hacking of computers owned by financial institutions or the government but now it covers every computer with an Internet connection. Provisions of the Economic Espionage Act, the National Stolen Property Act, the Wire Fraud Act, Electronic Communications Privacy Act, and the Identification Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act can be applied to computer hacking as well.
Prosecutors will file as many types of computer hacking charges as possible in an attempt to impose the harshest penalties against the accused. Additionally, Congress is attempting to strengthen computer hacking laws to increase punishments to up to 30 years in prison.
