What is an Internet Crime?

An internet crime is when a person commits a criminal act while using the internet. Types of internet crimes include:

  • Fraud
  • Phishing
  • Credit card fraud
  • Illegal downloading
  • Child pornography
  • Illegal pornography
  • Illegal distribution of viruses or spam
  • On-line solicitation of a minor

Pennsylvania Internet Crime Punishments

Upon conviction of an internet crime, a person faces the following potential consequences:

  • Imprisonment
  • Large fines
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Parole
  • Restitution
  • Registered Sex Offender pursuant to Megan's Law

If the convicted individual has an existing criminal offense on record, or if the internet crime involves a minor, he or she may face enhanced criminal charges and sentencing. And, the consequences are not just legal, as the individual can also have difficulty finding housing and employment. He or she also faces a potentially permanently tarnished reputation, severed personal relationships, and intense criticism from his or her community. Attorney Joe McIntosh has over seventeen years of experience defending people accused of internet crimes. If you are facing these charges, contact attorney McIntosh today!

Additional Information on Computer & Internet Crimes

On-line Solicitation of a Minor: This is when federal or state authorities have enough evidence to convict someone of intent to commit sexual activity with a minor. It is currently one of the most aggressively pursued cases by authorities. On-line solicitation involves any form of use of the internet including, but not limited to, contact via e-mail, instant messaging, and chat. Typically involving a male contacting an underage female, the contact becomes illegal once the conversation once it appears that the person is communicating in a sexually explicit manner.

Most times, a person is not prosecuted until he or she arranges to meet the minor. However, it is possible to prosecute the legally aged person simply for communicating in a sexually explicit manner, or if they forward sexually explicit material to the minor.

Attorney Joe McIntosh, with over seventeen years of experience, is here to help individuals accused of online solicitation of a minor.

Child Pornography: A child pornography charge is prosecuted by the state or federal government, which often conducts very thorough investigations. Depending on the circumstances of each case, the accused individual can face multiple charges for the same offense.

To successfully defend the case, attorney McIntosh will review the specifics of each charge. Working with psychologists, investigators, and forensic experts, he will identify evidence gathered under questionable circumstances or completely ignored by investigators. It is also possible to obtain child pornography unintentionally through pop-ups or unsolicited e-mails, but unfortunately, authorities show little mercy prosecuting these individuals.

Regardless of the circumstances, attorney Joe McIntosh does everything he can to aggressively protect the rights of his clients.

Illegal Pornography: In response to the ease with which illegal pornography is obtained on the internet, authorities have become more aggressive in investigating and prosecuting these cases. These cases are extremely serious due to the associated social stigma, extreme penalties faced upon conviction, and harshness with which offenders are prosecuted.

Law enforcement will typically arrive with a search warrant allowing them to investigate the defendant's computers and any type of storage media. Any statements provided by the defendant can be used against him or her later in court.

Attorney Joe McIntosh understands the complexity of these laws, and has seventeen years of experience successfully defending people from their consequences. Attorney McIntosh is fully invested in achieving the most favorable outcome for his clients. Before you speak with any authorities, contact attorney McIntosh today!

DIVORCE - EXCLUSIVE POSSESSION

It is prudent to consult with an experienced Pennsylvania divorce attorney for aid in negotiating who will remain in residence in the marital home during the divorce process rather than face potential eviction from the residence through a court order. If a mutual agreement cannot be made, the court has authority to enter an order for exclusive possession.
