Internet Crimes Attorney in NH & ME

The enormity and power of the Internet has brought about a new genre of criminal offenses, requiring a new skill set to defend them. As the Internet itself has grown, so has the rate of Internet crimes. Even the most computer savvy individuals fall victim to a variety of Internet crimes, including identity theft, fraud, hacking and others. Improper use of the Internet has been used to defraud customers, obtain credit card and back account information, secure social security numbers and damage individual and corporate computer networks.

Types of Cybercrimes & Their Penalties

The severity of Internet crimes vary depending on the monetary value of any damage caused. New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated §638:17 provides the following offenses under the term computer crime:

  • Unauthorized access to a computer or network
  • Theft of computer services
  • Interruption of computer services
  • Misuse of computer or network information
  • Destruction of computer equipment
  • Computer contamination

These are misdemeanor or felony offenses under §638:18, depending on the value of the loss.

Protecting You from Unreasonable Search & Seizure

Traditional Fourth Amendment search and seizure concepts are being twisted and turned to govern the searches of computers and other electronic devices in the Internet age. Law enforcement is growing increasingly confident in securing search warrants during the investigation of Internet crimes.

Asserting Fourth Amendment rights as well as protections under the New Hampshire Constitution, our attorneys regularly move to suppress evidence secured during computer searches and are credited with fighting issues that relate to computer searches all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Our criminal law team also maintains relationships with forensic computer experts in order to assess technical issues that relate to the prosecution and defense of such cases.
