The government does not have a free pass to search your computer and online history whenever and however it wants. The constitution guarantees your right against unreasonable search and seizure. If you have been charged with a computer or Internet crime, it's likely that the government intruded where it shouldn't have without a valid search warrant.
A conviction for an Internet crime can result in stiff penalties – including time behind bars and costly fines – so it would be wise to contact a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer at Suzuki Law Offices as soon as you have been arrested. We are available 24/7, and offer free initial consultations to all potential clients. Call now to get started on your defense.

Types of Computer Crime Cases We Handle
In Arizona, "cyber crime" is a broad category, covering everything from internet sex crimes to white collar crimes. Child pornography, for example, is often alleged to take place online, along with solicitation of a minor in chat rooms or by instant messaging. Sex crimes can mean serious prison time and mandatory sex offender registration if you are convicted.
Sex crimes aren't the only thing you can get in trouble for on a computer. The online world is home to a number of relatively new schemes, like click fraud and spam / email fraud, and with the advent of "cloud computing," the government doesn't necessarily need a search warrant to find what it needs to build a case against you. They can just look online.
Some of the most common types of cyber-crime include:
- Possession of child pornography
- Illegal sale of prescription drugs online
- Hacking into a computer or network
- Identify theft and credit card fraud
- Solicitation of a minor in a chat room
- Illegal downloading and file sharing
