Your behavior and activities following an accusation of an internet crime can play a significant role in how the case against you proceeds. Avoiding certain common mistakes is vital at this time.

The types of errors you could make in these circumstances vary depending on the specific nature of the crime you’re being accused of. The following are merely some general mistakes you should guard against:

  • Using the internet extensively: It may be virtually impossible for you to completely avoid using the internet while you wait for your case to be resolved. Like most people now, you probably use the internet for various purposes throughout your daily life. However, if you’ve been accused of an internet crime, odds are you typically access the internet to do more than simply check email, browse social media, etc. Try to identify any activities you engage in online that could make you a target for law enforcement. Even if you know you’re not breaking any laws, strongly consider refraining from these activities for now. You don’t want to give the prosecution additional ammunition to be used against you.
  • Attempting to destroy evidence: You might be tempted to destroy evidence that could be used against you by deleting downloaded materials, clearing your search and browsing history, and taking other such steps. Don’t do this. It’s possible law enforcement or prosecutors could recover this evidence anyway. They (and a jury) will have understandable reason to be suspicious if it’s found that you attempted to get rid of said evidence. Additionally, having access to all evidence that may be used against you is critical for your attorney as they build your case.
  • Discussing your case: Don’t discuss your case online (or anywhere else outside of conversations with your attorney) even if you believe you’re doing so anonymously. You could accidentally make incriminating statements.

This isn’t an exhaustive list. When discussing your case with a qualified Los Angeles internet crime attorney, consider asking more questions about what you should and shouldn’t be doing online while the case against you moves forward. They can help you better understand how to protect yourself.


The defenses our Los Angeles internet crimes lawyers employ when representing clients are tailored to their situations and needs. Be aware, your lawyer can’t lie on your behalf, claiming you’re innocent of a crime you’ve committed.

You must be honest with your lawyer. They can only build a strong case if all the information you provide them with is accurate.

To get a sense of how an attorney may defend you, consider the following examples of common defense strategies:

  • Showing someone else committed a crime while using your device or while masquerading as you via one of your major online accounts
  • Showing you unknowingly committed a cybercrime, which happens more often than many realize
  • Demonstrating that the evidence against you has not been obtained legally
  • Proving law enforcement induced you to commit a crime you otherwise would not have committed


Consult a defense attorney immediately if you suspect that you are under investigation for any type of internet crime, or if you have already been arrested in conjunction with an internet-related offense. It may be that law enforcement has already amassed evidence against you, or that you are only in the initial stages of an investigation. Either way, you are giving yourself the best chance at a successful outcome by consulting a Los Angeles internet crimes defense attorney as soon as possible.

The penalties for an internet crime may include a state prison or county jail sentence, probation, fines, community service, restitution (in the case of a theft or fraud crime), sex offender registration (in the case of an internet sex crime), and more. However, you can take action and benefit your future and your freedom by consulting our firm. We have experience both in public defense and in prosecution, and apply this diverse knowledge to defending our client’s cases, helping them reach the best outcome we can.
