Murfreesboro Tennessee Criminal Defense Attorney Defends Against Internet Crimes

Protection against serious federal or state penalties

In today’s technological age, many financial and other transactions take place online. In addition to recreational activities, banking and other innocent activities, illegal activities also take place on the internet. Often, state and federal taskforces are put in place to help identify illegal activity and to prosecute the offenders.

If you are facing an investigation involving an internet crime, it is important to contact a criminal defense lawyer experienced with internet crimes. Attorney David Scott has more than 20 years experience defending individuals throughout Rutherford County and the surrounding areas.

Types of internet crimes

Just like crimes in real life, there are a variety of crimes that are committed on the internet. Many of these crimes involve theft, fraud, or sex crimes. Because many crimes involve activities across state lines or accessing information in another state, they often qualify as federal offenses. Some common examples of internet crimes include:

  • Mail fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Band fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Embezzlement
  • Federal RICO charges
  • Identity theft
  • Credit card fraud
  • Cyber theft
  • Cyber stalking
  • Luring a minor

For any type of internet crime charge, you will need a lawyer to protect you against the potential penalties of a conviction.


Since internet crimes are often charged as a federal offense, a conviction can often mean serious penalties. Some penalties include:

  • Incarceration in a federal prison
  • Hefty fines
  • Restitution
  • Probation
  • Community service

Computer crime laws are complex and change with the advance of technology. It is important to have a lawyer on your side who understands these laws and the legal challenges and opportunities that they present.

Criminal defense of internet crimes

Many computer crime convictions hinge on very technical evidence. An experienced lawyer carefully assesses a case to determine possible defenses. For example, law enforcement may have violated your constitutional rights by conducting a search without a warrant. A computer forensic expert may be retained to show how a hacker or third party may have infiltrated your wireless network to try to blame you for the crime. A skilled criminal defense attorney looks for practical ways to have your charges reduced or dismissed, when applicable. Our knowledgeable defense attorney advocates on your behalf to receive a reduced sentence or lighter punishment when a plea bargain is the best option in your case. If a plea bargain is not in your best interest, our criminal defense attorney fights to prove your innocence in court. In either event, our criminal defense attorney provides you with a realistic outlook on your case and helps you weigh the pros and cons of your options so that you can make an informed decision.

Contact our respected criminal defense attorney for a tailored defense strategy

At the Law Office of David L. Scott, we move quickly to challenge the internet charges you are facing. By attacking the constitutionality of the government’s search or the factual foundation of its case, we may be able to get charges against you dismissed before they consume your life. Attorney David Scott provides individual attention and passionately advocates for you. Our office is conveniently located in Murfreesboro. To discuss your case, call 615-896-7656, or contact us by e-mail.
