Frequently Asked Questions
 

Can I be charged with a cyber crime if I didn't know my actions were illegal?

Ignorance of the law is generally not a defense, but lack of intent can be a crucial factor in some cases.
 

What should I do if I'm under investigation for a cyber crime?

Contact an attorney immediately and do not speak to law enforcement without legal representation.
 

Can law enforcement search my computer or phone without a warrant?

Generally, no. However, there are exceptions. We can review your case to determine if your rights were violated.
 

How long do cyber crime investigations typically last?

Investigations can last from a few months to several years, depending on the complexity of the case.
 

What's the difference between state and federal cyber crime charges?

Federal charges often involve crimes that cross state lines or affect federal systems. They typically carry harsher penalties.
