Cybercrime Cases We Handle

Many existing laws have been adapted—often clumsily—to address the growing threat of computer crimes. Conventional laws initially designed to tackle traditional forms of fraud, harassment, or trespassing, for example, have been broadened in their application to encompass cyber versions of these offenses. Because these laws were written long before the internet even existed, they can call for unjustifiably harsh punishments that do not necessarily fit the severity of the crime. Prosecutors nonetheless tend to aggressively prosecute these cases, underlining the importance of hiring skilled legal advocates when you are accused of any computer-related offense. Our Colorado Springs cybercrime lawyers are ready to represent you if you have been charged with many types of offenses, including:

  • Hacking
    Hacking is a term that has been widely associated with unauthorized intrusion into computer systems. At its core, hacking involves the manipulation of computer systems or networks, often with malicious intent. While not all types of hacking are illegal – ethical hacking, for instance, is a legal and often necessary practice used by organizations to identify and fix potential vulnerabilities – illegal or unethical hacking is a serious offense. Illegal hacking can be classified into several types, each with its unique method and motive. Some hackers, often referred to as black hat hackers, exploit system vulnerabilities for personal gain, damage reputations, steal sensitive data, or even manipulate financial systems. Others, known as hacktivists, use hacking as a means to promote a political agenda or social cause. In each case, the unauthorized access and manipulation of computer systems constitutes a criminal act.
  • Phishing
    Phishing involves the deceptive practice of sending fraudulent communications that appear to come from a reputable source, often through email. The primary objective is to steal sensitive data like credit card and login information or to install malware on the victim's machine. Phishing is considered a crime, as it involves fraudulent acts and intentions to deceive others for personal gain.
  • Identity Theft
    Digital identity theft is a multi-faceted crime that involves the fraudulent acquisition and use of another individual's personal identifying information, often for financial gain. This type of crime is growing increasingly prevalent in the digital age, where vast amounts of personal information are stored online and often inadequately protected. Digital identity theft is typically accomplished through a variety of deceptive practices that trick individuals into disclosing their personal information. A common method is phishing, in which the thief sends fraudulent communications that appear to be from a reputable entity such as a bank or a government organization. These communications often induce a sense of urgency or fear, pressuring the recipient into providing sensitive information like passwords, credit card details, or social security numbers. Another prevalent technique involves the use of computer viruses or malware, which can be unknowingly installed on a person's computer. These malicious programs can track keystrokes, capture screenshots, or directly access stored data, providing the perpetrator with a wealth of personal information. Additionally, perpetrators may exploit vulnerabilities in online systems to directly access stored personal information.
  • Electronic Harassment
    Electronic harassment refers to the use of electronic devices to harass, intimidate, or stalk another person. It is a form of cybercrime that has gained significant attention in recent years. Electronic harassment can take many forms, including (but not limited to) unwanted emails, text messages, instant messages, or social media posts. Electronic harassment becomes a crime when it causes a person to fear for their safety or suffer substantial emotional distress. While some forms of electronic harassment may seem relatively harmless, such as unsolicited emails or messages, they can escalate into more serious criminal behavior if they become persistent or threatening. It is important to note that for electronic harassment to constitute a legally actionable crime, certain criteria must be met. First, the behavior must be intentional rather than accidental. Second, it must be directed at a specific person. Third, it must be likely to cause that person distress or fear, and finally, it must consist of behavior that would cause a reasonable person to feel distressed or fear for their safety. Some accusations of electronic harassment are made in bad faith and may even come as a surprise. Our Colorado Springs cybercrime lawyers can thoroughly evaluate your circumstances and review your defense options, no matter the scope or nature of your interactions with another party that is accusing you of this offense.
  • Cyberstalking
    Cyberstalking is a more extreme form of electronic harassment that involves the use of digital communication tools to harass, intimidate, or stalk another individual persistently. It is an extension of the traditional crime of stalking into the digital realm. Cyberstalkers often use email, social media, instant messaging, phone calls, and other communication platforms to pursue their victims. The behavior ranges from sending threatening or obscene messages to tracking and sharing the victim's personal information without consent. What differentiates cyberstalking from casual online interaction is the persistent, invasive, and threatening nature of the communication, which can instill fear and distress in the victim. The act of cyberstalking can manifest in various forms, each carrying its unique set of symptoms and challenges. For instance, it could involve direct communication where the stalker frequently sends unwanted and disturbing messages or emails to the victim. Alternatively, it could involve more passive acts such as silent observation and information gathering, where the cyberstalker monitors the victim's online activity without their knowledge, gathering personal information that can be used to harass or intimidate them. In more severe cases, the cyberstalker may resort to spreading false information about the victim online, damaging their reputation and often causing immense emotional distress. Cyberstalking also often includes elements of identity theft, wherein the stalker might impersonate the victim online, damaging their reputation or perpetrating crimes under their identity. Allegations of cyberstalking are sometimes exaggerated or born of misunderstandings.
  • Internet Piracy of Intellectual Property
    Internet piracy involves the unauthorized use, reproduction, distribution, or selling of copyrighted material. This form of intellectual property theft has become increasingly prevalent in the era of digital technology, where a seemingly endless surplus of content like movies, music, software, and books is readily available online. The act of internet piracy typically involves the use of file-sharing networks, torrent sites, or direct download links to access copyrighted material without the necessary authorization or payment. While it may seem like everyone engages in at least some level of internet piracy, the penalties for committing this cybercrime can be severe, with consequences ranging from hefty fines to imprisonment. The exact nature of these penalties often depends on the extent of the piracy, the type of copyrighted material involved, and whether the act was carried out for personal use or commercial gain.
  • Distribution of Child Pornography
    Child pornography is a serious sex crime that involves the creation, possession, or distribution of sexually explicit material featuring individuals who are under the age of eighteen. In the state of Colorado, child pornography is referred to as “sexual exploitation of a child.” Child pornography evolves into a cybercrime when digital platforms and the internet are used to create, distribute, or access this type of sexually explicit material.
  • Online Solicitation
    Online solicitation is a form of cybercrime that involves communication via the Internet for the purpose of committing unlawful acts. This term is typically used to refer to the act of using the internet to solicit a minor for sexual activities. However, it can also refer to the solicitation of illegal activities such as fraud, identity theft, and drug trafficking. The act of internet solicitation often involves the use of digital communication platforms such as social media, instant messaging apps, forums, or chat rooms. The act of online solicitation becomes a crime when a person intentionally communicates with someone with the intent to commit an illegal act. In the context of sexual solicitation, this crime is committed when an adult intentionally communicates with a person believed to be a minor with the aim of engaging in sexual activities. This can involve persuading, inducing, enticing, or coercing the minor to participate in sexual behavior. Note that the crime is in the solicitation itself, and no sexual activity needs to have occurred for the act to be considered a crime.

When Do Colorado Cybercrimes Become Federal Offenses?

A cybercrime becomes a federal offense when it involves crossing state lines, use of federal communications infrastructure, or when it violates specific federal laws designed to address cybercrimes. Noteworthy federal laws include the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act, and the CAN-SPAM Act, among others.

Keep in mind that because most cybercrimes involve the use of interstate communication systems and/or parties across multiple states, many of these offenses fall under federal jurisdiction. If you may be facing federal charges, you should not wait to discuss your case with our Colorado Springs cybercrime attorneys at The Gasper Law Group.
