Enhanced Internet Crime Prosecution in Wake of COVID-19

In late April, the FBI reported that it had seen a 300% increase in cybercrime since the beginning of the global coronavirus pandemic. Before the pandemic, the Bureau received around 1,000 cybercrime complaints a day; by late April, they were getting closer to 4,000 a day. Experts believe that the sudden jump in cybercrime is attributable to more Americans spending their time online, from increased remote meetings to more free time in quarantine.

What does that mean for everyday Americans? It means that state and federal police will devote more time to investigating Internet crimes, and increased investigation means increased prosecution. That makes defendants more likely to be charged with committing Internet crimes, which makes our work as an Internet crimes defense firm even more vital.

Proven Defense for Internet/Cyber/Online Offenses

Criminal activities involving the internet include many different types of offenses, including various kinds of fraud, scams, hacking, cyberstalking, identity theft and various crimes related to solicitation and pornography.

Internet Crime Penalties

Online crimes can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, but may be charged at the federal level depending on the severity of the alleged offense. Some illegal online activity, such as distribution or possession of child pornography, violates both state and federal law.

Penalties for conviction of Internet crimes include:

  • Incarceration
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Asset seizure

If you have been charged under California's cybercrime laws, you need to act now. The police and prosecution are already trying to put you behind bars. Do not hesitate—contact the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed to start planning your defense. We proudly help clients in Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, Concord, and the surrounding areas!

Defending Your Rights, Protecting Your Freedom

In order to catch cybercriminals, particularly in internet sex crime cases, police have established special units that monitor online meeting places such as chat rooms and cyber forums to initiate contact with suspected offenders. Sometimes, these investigations go beyond permissible investigation and violate the suspect's rights.

One of the first things our Oakland internet crimes defense lawyer will do when a client has been charged is to investigate how the police gathered the evidence the prosecutor used to charge you with the offense. If it can be shown that the client's rights were infringed upon, we may be able to get the case dismissed outright. Attorney Ahmed has helped win acquittal or dismissal for hundreds of accused people throughout Oakland and East Bay.

If you are facing criminal charges related to your online activities, do not hesitate: call (510) 907-6600 to talk to our Oakland criminal defense attorney about your case. We have years of experience and are here to help.

WE ARE NOT JUST ANOTHER OPTION. WE SHOULD BE YOUR ONLY CHOICE.
