Honolulu Cyber Crimes Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu Cyber Crimes Lawyer

In Hawaii, as technology progresses, computer crimes or Cyber-crimes are an ever-expanding area of criminal law. Computer crimes are broad and can include crimes such as hacking and cyberstalking, to sex crimes such as online solicitation, and child pornography. Because this is a relatively new area of crime, the term “cybercrimes” did not even exist just a few decades ago.

“Overall, cybercrimes, which include both attacks and digital fraud, are at a six-year high. Last year, over 300,000 people in the U.S. fell victim to such crimes, according to Comparitech’s analysis of data from the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center annual report, and losses topped $1.2 billion.” In 2017 there were 1.923 victims of cybercrimes in Hawaii at a cost of $3,368,323 or $1,751.6 per victim.

But this is just one of many areas of computer crimes. Computer crimes can encompass a wide range of crimes from monetary crimes to sexual crimes. Some of these crimes may include, but are not limited to:

  • Hacking
  • Copyright violation
  • Cyberbully or Cyberstalking
  • Cyber terrorism
  • Cybersquatting
  • Software piracy
  • Phishing
  • Identity theft
  • Spamming
  • Creating Malware
  • Credit card fraud
  • Wiretapping
  • Fraud
  • Sexting
  • Online solicitation
  • Child pornography

Cybersex crimes are one of the many ways someone may find themselves in legal trouble. Many innocent people find themselves facing sex crime charges by simply clicking on a link accidentally and end up on a website known to have child pornography images. In many cases, law enforcement will monitor a website known to have these types of images so they can collect the IP addresses of people visiting the website. These people are then charged with very serious computer sex crimes that could land them in prison for many years.

These types of crimes can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony. But regardless of what type of internet crime you have been charged with, law enforcement is cracking down on all types of computer-related crimes. Cybercrime charges should not be taken lightly because they can result in severe penalties, including prison if convicted. Law enforcement is known to aggressively pursue cybercrimes, especially sex crimes.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
