The state and federal legislatures responded to the proliferation of the internet by creating new laws and new means to violate existing statutes. Cyber crimes are currently one of the fastest growing areas of legislation in the State of Texas.
Computer crimes may come in a number of forms: identity theft, frauds, sex crimes, spamming and phishing, money laundering, stalking, harassment, among others. Law enforcement agencies have created entire divisions to investigate crimes committed over the internet. The prosecutors are likely to spend long hours building their case. It is important a defendant hires an attorney familiar with computer crime prosecution to look out for their best interests.
