Birmingham Cyber Crime Lawyers
Navigating the Complexities of Computer & Internet Crimes
When you need a Birmingham criminal lawyer who can navigate the complexities of cyber crime defense, the team at Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, P.C. are here to fight for your rights. Computers and the internet are still relatively new to the world, and as a result regulations for their use are often murky. Many cyber laws are vague and law enforcement agencies have been known to overreact towards targets for prosecution. In addition, there are still questions regarding jurisdiction of many cases.
Serious cyber crimes such as identity theft and sex crimes are considered class B felonies in Alabama, with first-time convictions punishable by up to 20 years in prison. If you have been charged with a cyber crime, you need a Birmingham criminal defense attorney who is familiar with technology and the laws surrounding it. Our experienced team is known for its understanding of the law and will work to help you in this tough time.

Protecting You from the Court of Public Opinion
When it comes to cyber crimes such as identity theft, sex crimes, and piracy, the accused are often automatically considered guilty in certain circles.
