A conviction for Internet fraud or related charges — such as identity theft, credit card fraud, computer hacking, phishing, etc. — can carry serious penalties. Because the ‘evidence’ in computer crimes is electronically recorded, it may be difficult for even a seasoned trial attorney to achieve an acquittal at trial.
These cases often involve a large number of documents and hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of pieces of evidence in the form of electronic records such as receipts, e-mails, instant messages and other transactions. An effective defense often involves an exhaustive review of this evidence and documentation in order to determine the level of involvement and mitigate intent.

Only then can a client make an informed decision between proceeding with evidentiary trial or resolving a complex case by plea agreement.
