Denver internet crime attorneyColorado takes an aggressive approach to crimes involving the Internet, smartphones, or computers. Otherwise small-scale charges are sometimes ramped up to serious offenses simply because somebody’s computer was involved.

If you have been charged with a cyber crime in Colorado (that is, any crime allegedly committed over the Internet or while using any computing device), you need a legal advocate who has an in-depth understanding of Colorado cyber crime, which is an especially complex area of criminal law.

The truth is that ordinary people make innocent mistakes online every day. Computers are complicated and confusing, and the Internet can prey on vulnerability or naiveté in even the best of people.

Too often, prosecutors and police try to target someone’s simple slip of judgment, an accident, or a misunderstanding and turn it into a major crime, using Colorado’s aggressive statutes to escalate the charges.

Wolf Law understands how frightening, embarrassing, and unfair these charges can be. As experienced Denver cyber crime lawyers, we keep our fingers on the pulse of today’s popular and emerging technologies. We can provide an aggressive and effective legal defense for those who may be facing serious penalty.

Internet crimes in Colorado often carry lengthy prison sentences, including life in prison for some crimes. Sexual allegations also present the possibility that the accused could end up on a sex offender registry with lifelong consequences.

Regardless of the nature of your charges, if you have been accused of an Internet or computer crime in Colorado, your future and freedom are at stake.

Even if wrongfully accused, attempting to handle these charges by yourself could cost your quality of life. Tackling serious criminal charges without a lawyer’s help is a grave mistake.

Indeed, hiring an experienced Denver cyber crime lawyer may be the most important thing you’ll ever do. These cases are complex, and the stakes are high. The right attorney can make all the difference.

You don’t need to suffer harsher penalties than you deserve. Let Wolf Law come to your defense. We will fight tirelessly to minimize the potential penalties in your case and safeguard your good name.

Understanding Colorado Cyber Crime

Technology is extremely complicated, and so too are the criminal statutes surrounding it. The United States’ fundamental criminal laws were established hundreds of years ago, long before anyone had imagined the Internet or a cell phone.

In recent years, courts and legislatures have attempted to adapt these very old laws to fit modern times, often creating confusion or chaos along the way. Additionally, new laws treat computer crimes as inherently more dangerous than similar crimes that don’t involve modern technology. Accordingly, the punishments don’t always fit the crime.

Nevertheless, prosecutors and police tend to pursue these charges aggressively. By working with a Denver attorney for Internet crimes, you can stand up against the unfair and unjustified application of notoriously tough laws.

The Top 5 Cyber Crimes

Prosecutors pursue many kinds of computer crimes in Colorado, as well as at the federal level. Some charges are more common than others, though any can be extremely serious.

The following Top 5 Cyber Crimes list reflects the charges that police departments most often bring against people using the Internet on their smartphones or computers:

  • Online Fraud (including phishing, phony transactions, and identity theft)
  • Piracy of Intellectual Property (including software, movies, music, etc.)
  • Hacking / Cyber Espionage
  • Sex Crimes (including prostitution, solicitation, and child pornography)
  • Drug trafficking

Other Common Types of Cyber Crime

In today’s increasingly digital world, almost any crime might carry a cyber allegation. In addition to the Top 5 Cyber Crimes outlined above, other common types of cyber crime include:

  • Electronic harassment
  • Stalking / Cyberstalking
  • Distribution of malware or viruses
  • Online scams
  • Communication of threats
  • Promotion or distribution of obscene materials
  • Harboring obscene materials
  • Contributing to the delinquency of a minor
  • Engaging in sexual activity with a minor (or attempting to do so)
  • Blackmail
  • Extortion
  • Intentionally accessing someone’s email account or other private accounts without permission
  • Gambling
  • Sports betting
  • Accessing a service without paying for it
  • Failure to deliver an item someone purchased from you online
  • Purchasing illegal items / contraband
  • Aiding terrorism
  • Conspiracy charges
  • Unlawful email activity, which may include something as seemingly simple as sending too many commercial emails or failing to ensure the absolute accuracy of an email header

The foregoing is not a comprehensive list of computer crimes at the state or federal level. Remember that cyber charges and penalties may accompany any crime that is alleged to have involved commission via Internet.

A Lawyer Who Understands Technology

Knowing the law is essential in these cases, but your lawyer also needs to thoroughly understand the relevant technologies. Even the most competent attorney can’t effectively defend against a cyber charge if he or she doesn’t understand the complexities of the technologies involved.

You need a lawyer who is ready and prepared to handle allegations involving:

  • Chat rooms
  • Instant Messenger
  • Text messages / iMessage
  • Private / Direct Messages
  • Dropbox
  • File sharing
  • Alternative messaging or texting applications
  • Skype / Videoconferencing
  • Phone calls, including digital phone calls
  • Webcams and video-sharing or Internet broadcasting
  • Online streaming
  • Uploads and downloads
  • Social media (including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Kik, Tumblr, etc.)
  • Smartphone applications
  • Email / Email marketing
  • Proxy servers
  • FTP
  • Edge, 3G, 4G, LTE, and other cellular data networks
  • Photo-sharing platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, etc.
  • Ecommerce
  • Mac, Windows, Lenux, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and other operating systems

The attorneys at Wolf Law understand these technologies and many more. Don’t make the mistake of trusting your life in the hands of someone who promises they’ll “figure it out.” Hire an attorney who’s already figured it out.

Jeff Wolf Helped Me Keep My Job

Jeff was a terrific advocate while representing me through my DWAI. He was professional. I am convinced that it was his prior trial experience and effective communication skills that secured a much more desirable sentence than I had expected. I am positive that Jeff’s representation made it so that I could keep my job.

Wolf Law is Well Worth the Investment

Thanks to Jeff Wolf I had the ideal outcome on my case, whereas without any representation it would’ve been a less than desirable outcome without me even fully knowing my options. He was extremely informative and thorough; it was clear that not only did he know what to do for every scenario but I was confident that he would make it happen, which he did. Very personable and easy to trust, I highly recommend Jeff and Wolf Law.

— Jeff H.

Would Have Been Lost Without Wolf Law

I was charged with my first DUI and was referred to Jeff by a friend of mine. He gave me a realistic expectation of what would happen and is an expert at navigating the process. Jeff is always incredibly quick to respond and is very knowledgeable. He is professional and represented me well in the courtroom. The experience of being charged with a DUI is a terrible, humiliating and challenging event – having an experienced attorney was priceless!

Best Possible Outcome Thanks to Wolf Law

When I walked into the office I was at a low point I can’t describe. When I talked to Jeffrey Wolf I wanted to hear, “Don’t worry, you’re going to be fine.” Instead I was told the honest truth: I was in serious trouble, but he would fight like crazy to get me the best possible outcome. After thinking about that I realized it was far better to hear the truth rather than a lawyer trying to get my business, and in the end I got exactly what Jeff said: Good advice, an excellent professional defense, and I believe the best possible outcome I could have wanted. I highly recommend Wolf Law.

Much Appreciation!

After a misread medical record, I was wrongly accused of a serious crime. Even though doctors admitted that the nurse misstated the severity of an injury, law enforcement tried to destroy my life. Law enforcement threatened to take away my wife, my kids and my life. I called around to a couple of attorneys, and no one offered the type of first-class customer service that Jeff provided. He was immediately available. Throughout the process, Jeff was there to guide and protect me. He was always available. And, after a long journey together, we found justice and freedom. During the process, I found Jeff to be intelligent, determined and highly personable. I strongly recommend Jeff!

Highly Recommend Wolf Law for DUI Cases

I hired Jeff Wolf to represent me for a DUI and accident involving damages. While I knew I was 100 percent in the wrong, Jeff never once made me feel like a terrible person for making a mistake. He quickly responded to emails and always called me back quickly when I had questions (I had a lot of questions). I’ve never been in trouble with the law before, and Jeff was patient in explaining everything thoroughly to me throughout the entire process, and was also able to get my sentence reduced. I recommend him to anyone going through a similar situation.

— Emily

Wolf Law is your best option!

I’ve had the privilege of getting Jeff Wolf to represent me in my 1st DUI case. He did a great job explaining the case, the possible outcomes and overall getting good results. I highly recommend his services to anyone who has any moving violation infraction perhaps more and want to have the best results in court. Thank you Jeff.

Deferred Sentence, Sealed Record For Pot Possession

In July of 2009 I was charged with possession of marijuana. I contacted Jeff with Wolf Law and worked with him to find my best options. Jeff was very knowledgeable, honest and professional. He worked quickly and effectively to get me a deferred sentence and ultimately seal the record of this infraction. I also had a prior charge that was many years old that was also a deferred sentence. Jeff worked to seal that record in order help maintain my privacy. I now have used this ability to change my field of work and pass a background check with no infractions visible on my record. My life is moving onward and upward due to the help that was provided by Wolf Law. Thank You Jeff!

I Recommend Jeff Wolf to Anyone Needing Legal Defense

I retained the services of Jeff Wolf after I received a DUI. During the free consultation, Jeff reviewed his services and the details of what would happen before, during and after my trial. He was very thorough, supportive and diligent in ensuring all my questions were answered. I am thrilled with the level of service he provided for an extremely reasonable fee. Jeff was accessible and reassuring throughout this entire process. The end-result of my hearing was exactly what I had expected based on Jeff’s counseling. This is a direct result of his knowledge and experience with the court and the system. I was very impressed with his closing presentation in court and his professionalism and felt that the judge reduced my fines and my sentence because of Jeff’s efforts. I have already recommended him to two other people and will continue to recommend him to anyone requiring the services of a defense attorney.
