There are many different types of Internet crimes, including child pornography, wire fraud, copyright crimes, trademark crimes, bank fraud, and other kinds of theft or embezzlement. If you’ve been accused of using your computer or the internet to commit a crime, it’s important for you to find an attorney who is very familiar with the technologies associated with the internet and cyberspace, including TCP/IP, peer-to-peer technologies, and the details of storage formats.

Since the early 1990s, before the internet was a widespread phenomenon, I’ve used the Internet, dabbled in programming, and have been a user of various technologies, including peer-to-peer technologies, that are commonly implicated in an internet crime case.

Since I understand everything from tracerouting, to the shortcomings of tracking someone by their IP address, to the specifics of encryption technologies.

If you’re accused of a crime in Raleigh involving the internet, or computer technologies, including the ones listed above – child pornography, wire fraud, copyright crimes, and other kinds of bank fraud or embezzlement – you should consult with a lawyer who understands and has worked with these technologies, and who can build the strongest possible defense to your case.
