Michigan Internet Crimes Defense

Internet and computer-related laws pass at an incredible pace at federal and state levels. Unfortunately, in a rush to prosecute these offenses, law enforcement has been overzealous in prosecuting felony and misdemeanor offenses. The tools and techniques for investigating these crimes are incredibly complex and technical. Because most criminal defense lawyers do not have vast experience in analyzing this type of evidence, it is easy for mistakes made by police to fall through the cracks or, in some cases, manipulate evidence to escape challenge. Through zealous investigation by defense counsel and, in some cases, consultation with experts, a defense can succeed in these cases. A successful defense can result in the reduction or dismissal of charges, a reduction in a jail or prison sentence, or an acquittal at trial. The result of a case, including jail or freedom, will often depend on an experienced, dedicated, and zealous internet crimes defense attorney.

The team of defense lawyers with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. has successfully defended clients in all Michigan and federal courts. We pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge of computer and internet crime defense. Whether a client is innocent of charges or bears some culpability, we will do whatever is necessary to achieve the best possible result. Of course, obtaining a dismissal of all charges is always our top priority when possible.

All criminal charges start with allegations. If you suspect you are being investigated or accused of computer crimes, you must establish a defense and take mitigating measures immediately.

Although law enforcement may disagree, evidence in these cases may have been downloaded or uploaded in error or inadvertently. Unintentional or accidental possession is common in child pornography cases. Rarely are these cases as clear as a prosecutor may allege.

Computer and internet-related crimes are becoming increasingly complex in today’s digital age and carry severe penalties. Working with a criminal defense attorney experienced in these specific areas is essential for anyone facing such charges. These attorneys possess a deep understanding of both the technology involved and the evolving legal landscape governing digital conduct.

An experienced attorney can challenge the prosecution’s evidence, often technical, and present a defense that accounts for the nuances of internet behavior and digital data management. Furthermore, they are adept at explaining complex technical issues to judges and juries in understandable terms, ensuring that the defense’s arguments are compelling and clear.
