What Is Cybercrime? [Infographic]
When you hear ‘cybercrime,’ you probably think ‘hacking.’ And while that is a cybercrime, that’s only part of it.
Cybercrime involves any criminal act dealing with computers and/or networks.
Computers can be used as the means of committing a crime, as well as the targets of the crime.
Here are some examples:
Unlawful access to a computer
Storing illegal information
In Arizona, cybercrimes can be classified as anything from misdemeanors to felonies.
Because of this, there are several punishments you could face for committing cybercrimes.
Fines: These can range from a few hundred dollars to over $100,000.
Jail or Prison Time: More serious crimes can result in 20 years or more.
Probation: While the amount of time varies widely, it is typically at least one year.
If you or a loved one has been accused of committing a cybercrime, you need the counsel of a professional criminal defense attorney.
