Internet crimes may be prosecuted on both the state and federal level.

Being accused of an internet-related crime is a serious matter; if you have been arrested and charged with such a crime or are being investigated by a state or federal law enforcement agency, you will need a competent criminal defense attorney. We recommend that you contact a St. Louis internet crimes attorney at our criminal defense firm as soon as possible. We can review your situation, evaluate what needs to be done, and begin building a defense strategy on your behalf.

Internet Crimes

Internet crimes include computer hacking and intrusion, password trafficking, spam, phishing, child pornography and exploitation, various forms of internet fraud, internet harassment, internet bomb threats, trafficking in explosive devices over the internet, identity theft, sexual predator operations against minors using the internet, internet scams, and more. If you access or use a computer system without proper authorization, add or alter information, falsely use a domain name, or tamper with, disrupt, or destroy a system, you may also be charged with an internet or computer crime.

Because the internet crosses state lines, these crimes are often federal offenses which makes your case that much more complicated and serious. In these cases, you will need a criminal defense lawyer who can represent you in federal court. A St. Louis internet crimes lawyer at our firm can provide representation at both the state and federal level; our attorneys have handled hundreds of criminal cases and are fully prepared to defend you.

  • Can I represent myself?
    Yes. Although the right is not unlimited, in every criminal prosecution, the accused must be permitted to act as his or her own attorney. However, the better question is whether you should represent yourself. To that question, the answer is undeniably no.

  • What if I am guilty?

    Although your thoughts on guilt or innocence of the charges against you are important, it is only one factor that should be considered in how to dispose of the criminal case.

    The Whiteley Law Firm is committed to ensuring that those charged with criminal offenses receive a result that is in their best interest. In doing so, we always ensure that the conduct of the police has been proper and the prosecution can meet their burden of proof.

  • Will my case be dismissed if the police did not read me my Miranda rights?

    The continued popularity and proliferation of crime drama television shows perpetuates the idea that the police must advise the suspect of his or her Miranda rights immediately upon being arrested. This television show concept, however, is a myth. The police are under no obligation to inform someone of their constitutional rights once placed in custody.

    The Miranda warnings – generally, the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney – take their name from the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court decision of the same name, Miranda v. Arizona. The landmark decision requires law enforcement officials to inform individuals in custody of their rights prior to any questioning. In other words, with some limited exceptions, Miranda warnings are only required when the police interrogate someone while they are in custody.

    Given these two requirements, the question whether a case will be dismissed can become a complex question. Suffice it to say, while complete dismissal of the case is not impossible, the more likely result from a Miranda violation would be suppression of the illegally obtained evidence.
