Types Of Computer Crimes In New York

Computer crimes can result in charges in both New York state court and federal court, depending on your individual circumstances. There are also different types of computer crimes and internet crimes such as:

  • Hacking into a private account
  • Stealing personal information
  • Accessing confidential information
  • Skimming or phishing
  • Cyber stalking
  • Internet possession of pornographic photos or videos

All cyber crimes that are facilitated by the use of a computer are aggressively prosecuted at the state and federal levels. Computer crimes that include deceptive or fraudulent practices may also follow a separate white collar crimes charge or fraud charge.
