Investigating and prosecuting a computer crime is very technical. Many prosecutors are unfamiliar with all of the aspects surrounding a computer crime, and therefore may be unable to find sufficient evidence that the crime occurred to prosecute the defendant. Computer crimes can take place just about anywhere, from residential homes to offices to Internet cafes and wi-fi hotspots. They can be committed on almost any device from desktop computers to tablet computers to laptops and even on smartphones.
Because of the nature of the anonymity of computer crimes, it also makes the investigation difficult for law enforcement. If there are no witnesses, no substantial evidence and it cannot be proven who was using the computer at the time the crime was committed, there can be no conviction.
What To Do If You’re Facing Computer Crime Charges
Although it will be difficult for law enforcement to thoroughly examine your case, they will still conduct an investigation. Your electronics may be seized, your home may be searched and you will be questioned. This can be disconcerting and confusing, and it can make you feel like a hardened criminal.
