Cyber Crimes in Chicago

Chicago Attorney Providing Defense for Cyber Crimes Charges

The rise of the digital age has revolutionized the way business is conducted, information is stored and accessed, and people communicate. There are numerous benefits to the proliferation of the Internet and the accessibility of computers. However, there are also dangers. Computer activity is often integral in crimes concerning fraud, hacking and virus planting, and a broad array of white collar crimes. Due to the sweeping reach of the Internet, it is not uncommon for people to become dragged into alleged crimes or even violate laws on their own without realizing it.

Common Cyber Crimes you can be charged for:

  • Identity Theft
  • Hacking
  • Transaction Fraud
  • Piracy
  • Advanced Fee Fraud
  • And any other crime that involves the Internet

​​​​​​If you believe you may have broken a law or are facing cyber crime charges, don’t hesitate to contact The Law Office of Stephen F. Hall at (312) 757-8204.

Cases We’ve Seen In the Past

In the past, we have seen cyber crimes cases dismissed through proving:

  • Evidence was obtained illegally – Like with physical property, law enforcement officers need either the owner's permission or a search warrant to legally search someone's computer. If any evidence was obtained without following proper protocol, it will be considered inadmissible in court.
  • An alibi – Like with physical crimes, we may be able to demonstrate that you could not have been using your computer at the time the alleged crimes were committed and the charges may be dropped. It is not unheard of for incriminating information to have been planted on someone else's computer without their knowledge.
  • Complete ignorance – Computers can be used by any of the many people who pass through a home or office. Additionally, they can be accessed remotely via the Internet. If we can demonstrate that a person accused of a crime had no knowledge that their computer was being used in an illegal manner, we may be able to have the charges dropped.
  • Unintentional access – If the crime was illegally accessing certain information, we can aim to prove that the alleged access was accidental and there was no intention of committing a crime.
