Internet crime or cybercrime is a new area of criminal law. As with wire fraud, the term encompasses a wide range of criminal activity that utilizes the internet as a tool. Some of the charges made under this banner are:
- Identity theft
- Credit card, investment and internet auction fraud
- Creating or distributing computer viruses
- Internet phishing
- Solicitation of a minor and other sexual crimes
- Child pornography crimes
If you are under investigation or have been arrested for any of the above crimes, Irvine-based Ron Cordova, Attorney-At-Law, can provide immediate counsel and strong legal representation in your defense.
A Lawyer With Essential Federal Court Experience
Internet crimes are usually charged in federal court. Federal prosecutors have more investigative resources at their disposal and are usually more experienced than their state counterparts. It is vital that you choose an attorney with federal court experience to challenge the case against you.
Ron Cordova has tried over 150 jury trials in federal and state courts across the United States. With over 40 years of criminal law experience as both a prosecutor and defense attorney, Ron will anticipate and challenge the prosecution’s case to ensure that your rights are protected.
Alternate Sentencing May Be An Option
If the evidence is overwhelmingly against you, it is still possible to avoid or lessen the penalties that you face. California Penal Code § 502(k)(2) permits the court to consider community service or other forms of alternate sentencing in cases where defendants show remorse for their actions and are deemed unlikely to commit future crimes.
Ron will carefully assess your case and advise you of the available options to you. If a plea bargain is preferable, he will do everything possible to mitigate the consequences.
