Computer & Internet Crime
Computer and Internet crime can take may forms, including but not necessarily limited to:
- Child Pornography (accessing, possessing, distributing, making)
- Child Luring
- Corrupting Morals & Obscenity
- Hate Speech
- Publication of Intimate Image Without Consent (“revenge porn”)
- Harassment (“cyber stalking” or “cyberbullying”)
- Cyber Mischief
These offences are serious and should be addressed by a lawyer as soon as you become aware of the fact that you have been charged or are under investigation. While the sentence for any of these offences will depend on the circumstances of each individual case, a conviction for any criminal offence will result in a criminal record, which can negatively impact many areas of your life including your reputation, your ability to maintain or obtain employment, and your ability to travel to other countries like the United States. This is especially true with sexual offences, all of which carry a heavy stigma that can follow you for the rest of your life. In addition, a conviction for these offences may carry other penalties including a potentially lengthy term of imprisonment. A conviction for a sexual offence may also result in the requirement that you register as a sex offender for 10 years to life.
Now is not the time to delay! Your reputation, future, and freedom are too important. In all cases, you are well advised to immediately speak with Mr. Mckee so he can evaluate your case, get your side of the story, and relentlessly defend you against your charges.
