If you have been charged with a computer crime, The Trainor Law Firm, P.C., can help. Call our Manhattan criminal defense law firm at 212-300-6557 or contact us online to request your free initial consultation. Attorney Craig Trainor defends clients charged with all types of computer crime charges, including:

  • Computer trespass
  • Computer tampering
  • Forgery
  • Installing a virus or other malware into a computer
  • Unlawful duplication of computer-related material
  • Criminal possession of computer-related material
  • Hacking
  • Phishing
  • Unauthorized use of a computer
  • Internet sex crimes

Cyber crime requires a sophisticated and up-to-date understanding of computer technology and the latest cyber crime tactics. One of the first steps criminal attorney Craig Trainor takes in defending a client charged with a computer crime is to obtain a copy of the digital evidence taken by police or government agents. He then works with computer forensic experts to analyze any evidence against you.

Defenses Against Computer Crime

Mr. Trainor understands how to identify and exploit weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. He will examine all possible defense strategies, including:

  • It wasn’t you.
  • You had reasonable grounds to believe you were authorized to use the computer.
  • You reasonably believed you had authorization to alter or destroy data on the computer.
  • You had the right to copy, reproduce, or duplicate the computer data or program.
  • Your constitutional rights were violated.

Defending Computer Crime Clients in State and Federal Court

Computer crimes can result in both state and federal charges. If the computer in question was connected to the Internet at the time the alleged crime occurred, the federal government can bring charges.

Mr. Trainor has the experience and skill to represent you in state and federal court. In either venue, he will examine whether the evidence against you was obtained legally, if search warrants were issued and executed properly, and if police or government agents respected your rights at all stages of your arrest and booking.
