Internet Crimes

St. Louis Internet Crime Attorney

Types of Internet Crimes

Attorney Brent Labovitz has practiced criminal defense law exclusively since his graduation from law school. He started by working for a respected Chicago, Illinois criminal defense law firm and went on to become lead counsel in hundreds of misdemeanor and felony criminal case at the Missouri Public Defender's Office. His experience as a public defender gives him an understanding of the criminal justice system which most attorneys do not have. Along with the other lawyers that he works with, part of his practice is keeping up to date on new types of crimes, the laws that pertain to them and how they can be successfully defended. This includes a relatively new type of offense known as internet crimes.

Offenses on the internet include, but are not limited to:

  • Theft crimes like credit card fraud or identity theft
  • Sex crimes such as downloading or possession or child pornography or online solicitation of a minor
  • Unlawful use of a web cam
  • Hacking or illegally accessing computer systems
  • Release of malicious spyware or destructive viruses
  • Trafficking of illegal substances, such as drugs
  • Skimming (stealing credit card information at the point of purchase)
  • Internet telemarketing and sales fraud

If you feel an investigation is already underway against you, or your files, hard drives or computer have been seized by prosecutors, it is urgent that you contact an experienced St. Louis criminal defense lawyer from the firm without delay. If an arrest has already been made, the firm strongly urges you to not talk to police or prosecutors until you have spoken to your attorney first.

St. Louis Lawyer Defending Internet Crime Charges

There are many methods which can be used to defend you against an internet crime charge and obtain a favorable outcome to your case. In some instances, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution can be utilized to defend your right to take part in actions in the privacy of your own home. The firm can carefully review the circumstances which led to a warrant to seize your property that will be used as evidence against you. This may reveal that there was no reasonable cause to think you were engaged in illegal activities. When this is the case, the evidence gathered against you may not be admissible in a court of law. Where possible and advisable, negotiation with a prosecutor may get the charges against you reduced or dismissed. If your case must go to trial, the firm takes an aggressive stand to protect your rights and freedoms. It may be possible to show that you did not know your computer was being used for illegal purposes.

If you are charged with or are under investigation for an internet crime, quickly contact a St. Louis internet crime attorney for proven legal assistance.

I would highly recommend Brent When feeling uncomfortable with the public defender in IL, I decided to seek additional information from Brent. I was impressed with Brent's knowledge and experience. I ended up firing my public defender (who was about to have me plead guilty) to hire Brent. After hiring Brent, we reviewed all of the details of my case. He immediately saw "red flags" and was able to investigate my case thoroughly, and in the end filed a motion to dismiss the case. My case was thrown out by the judge siding with Brent instead of the Attorney General from the state. In facing some significant charges, Brent was able to make me feel comfortable and I immediately thought I could trust his knowledge and experience to help me defend my rights in court. I knew he was fighting for me and could prove the charges were false. I would highly recommend Brent if you are need of a competent and professional lawyer to represent you
