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.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the Attorneys For Freedom Law Group during a... couple difficult circumstances in my life and although it is never fun to have the need for a defense attorney, the tireless efforts that Mark, Rachel and the rest of the team put in on my cases went over and above. At the end of the day my results were better than I could have expected. I highly recommend them for all of their services and more than satisfied with everything that they did for me.Thank you Attorneys for Freedom,Chip Kotyread more

I highly recommend the Attorneys For Freedom! I signed up for the attorneys on retainer program and... it has literally saved me tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The program manager, Jonathan Harris, guided me through the process of using their legal service’s like a true professional. The communication has been excellent and it truly was refreshing and comforting knowing I had a reputable law firm helping me every step of the way. He actually relieved me from the headaches of trying to deal with this issue, so I could focus on our business and as a result my business partner and I did get a favorable outcome that we’re happy with.read more
