Komie and Associates

Chicago Computer Crimes Defense Lawyer

Springfield Internet Crime Defense Attorney

Attorney Defending Clients Charged With Internet Crimes in Illinois and Throughout the U.S.

Computers and the internet have revolutionized the way we access information, the way we do business, and the way we communicate with each other. But while the benefits of today's digital world are many, there are dangers as well. Computers are often used in corporate fraud or other white collar crimes, but with the increasing prevalence of hacking and computer viruses, many people may become involved in alleged crimes or violate laws without even being aware that they are doing so.

The authorities involved in prosecuting computer crimes can be aggressive in their pursuit of convictions, so if you have been accused of cyber crime, you need an attorney who understands the law and the methods of investigation that could be used against you. Attorney Stephen M. Komie has over 40 years of experience defending clients against a wide variety of criminal charges, and the attorneys of Komie and Associates have been on the cutting edge of working to extend constitutional protections to the private use of computers both in the home and at the office.

Skilled Defense Against Allegations of Computer Crime

Our attorneys have defended numerous clients in cases of cyber crime, and we understand the right approach to use in each case. Possible defenses in cases of computer or internet crime include:

  • Illegally obtained evidence - Law enforcement officers cannot legally search someone's computer without a search warrant or the owner's permission. If any evidence was obtained through illegal search and seizure, we will argue to have it suppressed in court.
  • Alibi - Incriminating information can be planted on someone's computer without their knowledge. If we can demonstrate that a defendant could not have been using their computer at the time the alleged crimes were committed, we can argue to have the charges dismissed.
  • No knowledge of the crime - Computers are often accessed remotely over the internet, and they can be used by many different people in a home or office. If we can demonstrate that a person accused of a crime had no knowledge that their computer was being used in an illegal manner, we may be able to have the charges dropped.
  • Accidental access - When a defendant is charged with illegally accessing certain systems or information, we may be able to demonstrate that the alleged access was accidental and that the defendant did not intend to commit a crime.
