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 just left USCCA and signed up with AOR today after much research, and watching a gazillion... youtube videos from all of the various providers of CCW protection. I believe that by becoming a client of an actual law firm, I am on substantially more solid ground regarding the quality of legal assistance I will receive should I ever be involved in a self defense incident.From the first exploratory phone call that I made to AOR, to my signing on with them, all of the staff I spoke with were extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and informative. They spent time answering any and all questions that I had, without any sense that they were trying to rush through the conversation. Additionally, none of the staff attempted to apply any sales pressure to join AOR as if they were used car salesmen, they simply answered questions and provided information. That was greatly appreciated.I feel much more confident in my potential legal position following a self defense incident knowing that events that would end coverage under other programs, will have no affect on my legal protection with AOR.read more
