Defending Computer Crimes in Westchester County
The best defense to computer and internet crimes is to determine the extent of the proof the government has to prove their case and then to attack the strength of the evidence.
Some common defenses include:
- The information was not placed on the computer (downloaded or otherwise) by the accused
- The URL was manipulated by a third party
- There is an error with the server or ISP
- The computer in question was "hacked" as someone has access to your computer or wireless network
- The police improperly entrapped and accused and then made an arrest
In some instances an accused may want to hire a forensic computer expert to further analyze the government's claims or the criminal charges.
