HAVE YOU BEEN ACCUSED OF:
Internet Crime or Computer Hacking
Internet criminal lawyers from LibertyBell Law Group work on a team with criminal defense experts that specialize in cyber cases and laws. A cyber crime is one that occurs via the internet. Many types of internet offenses exist including:
- Internet Sex offenses include child pornography, child enticement or luring a minor over the internet and other uses of the internet to commit or contribute to any type of sex offense.
FACING CHARGES OF COMPUTER HACKING
Computer Hacking refers to the act of gaining unauthorized access to computer systems for the purpose of stealing, altering or corrupting data. Internet crime such as internet-terrorism and theft may involve computer hacking to gain access to the private network of an organization. Often the access to such confidential information results in pecuniary gain. Computer hacking and internet offenses may cross state borders as computers are often located in different states and are thus prosecuted in federal courts. State and federal attorneys from LibertyBell Law Group have a track record of winning internet cases and getting the best outcome for each client that stems from having the top internet criminal lawyers and experts in the country.
Because the FCC holds jurisdiction over the Internet, a defendant is subject to Federal Prosecution, leaving him or her again exposed to the severe Federal Sentencing guidelines. If you suspect you may be charged or under investigation by the federal government, it is critical you obtain the services of experienced federal criminal defense lawyers.
INTERNET CRIME & COMPUTER HACKING PENALTIES
The most common penalty is restitution in order to compensate those who suffered financial loss due to the hacking, network, or internet offenses. Because of the considerable financial damage that can result from computer hacking actions, the restitution amount can be quite substantial, and prison terms are not uncommon. If the defendant has committed a prior criminal offense, especially if it involved the downloading or sharing of child pornography over the internet or it involving the luring of a minor or child, a defendant may be subject to severe criminal enhancements in sentencing if convicted. The consequences and penalties of an internet offense may include:
- Heavy fines
- Community Service
An experienced internet criminal attorney can often be instrumental in minimizing associated penalties and fines, saving the defendant thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. An experienced criminal attorney can also help work out reasonable payment plans that actually allow for the defendant to pay the damages back over a reasonable time period, often while keeping the defendant out of jail or prison.
Your federal criminal defense lawyer should always consider the possibility of trial in your case, particularly if you did not commit the alleged offense. A trial does not only establish whether you broke the law; it also is used to establish the monetary amount of loss.
Computer hacking charges can carry penalties that may seem extremely severe for the actual act involved. Defending these charges requires a defense team with internet experience.
Remember it is up to the prosecution to prove the amount of actual loss. A strong aggressive criminal attorney along with his team of forensic accountants and experts can make tremendous impact on the result of your case.
Pre-trial preparation is the key to successful defense of internet charges. Your defense team needs to have the experience and expertise to examine computer logs and records to determine which evidence is relevant to your case and how they might be used for your defense. This investigation generally requires discovery motions to compel prosecutors, employers, banks and other institutions to turn over records that can be used in your defense.
Because of the time and specialized skills involved, mounting a criminal defense requires a team, not just a single attorney. Prosecutors generally pursue cases they feel they can prove in trial. This is why it is critical to dig even deeper than the prosecution and inject the reasonable doubt that will let you win in the courtroom if necessary.
CRIMINAL LAWYERS THAT WIN
The obvious goal of our criminal lawyers is to get charges against you dismissed or, barring that, get a not guilty verdict.
In the event that it is not possible to disprove a specific charge against you, our criminal attorneys can be extremely helpful at sentence reduction. The complexity of white collar cases creates many opportunities for plea bargains, and the lattitude that state court judges can have makes it possible to greatly reduce sentences and penalties.
At LibertyBell Law Group, we have assembled a team of criminal attorneys with experience defending against white collar criminal charges, such as computer hacking. Our experience spans state courtrooms across the country and the federal court system. Our criminal lawyers have successfully defended clients in cases involving millions of dollars and multiple years of defense work.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:
Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.
I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!– L. W.
Best defense lawyers in the country.
I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.– V. J.
A great team of lawyers.
I do not have enough words to describe how incredible the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!– S. O.
She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.
My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.– C. D.
Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.
When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at Liberty Bell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.– S. B.
Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.
Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.– A. B.
