Computer Crimes

Computers have embedded themselves in our daily lives. Many people use computers both at work and home, paying bills and shopping in addition to reading the news and emails. Such widespread useage of computers has naturally lead to several computer crimes that can occur in a wide variety of areas, from fraudulent financial crimes and banking to soliciting a minor or child pornography.

Located in the Texas Penal Code at Chapter 33, other areas of computer crime commonly prosecuted in Texas are Breaches of Computer Security, Online Solicitation of a Minor, Online Harassment, and the rare but illegal Tampering with Electronic Voting Machines.

Many computer cases are prosecuted by obtaining records from within the compter or online database files and servers. Often this evidence is used in an attempt to prove a certain individual accessed records and committed a fraud -- proximity and access to the comptuer itself provides a tenuous circumstantial link for the district attorney to argue a computer crime without direct evidence. Because of this, it is important to have an attorney familiar with computers and internet functions, websties, and server protocols.

Defending a computer crime case requires a great deal of computer knowledge and overall technological savvy. Great care must be used when investigating mirror images of hard drive data, sifting through internet history, and looking at certain programs, registries, and bios settings. The Law Offices of Robert Keates pride themselves on proficiency of computers, both hardware, software, and internet functions, and has had success in the past at obtaining good results for clients in computer fraud and cyber crime cases.
