Computer crimes are among the most common crimes in the United States, as well as in the military. Essentially, a crime is classified as a computer crime when a criminal act is committed through the use of a computer. These crimes can include theft crimes, child pornography, espionage, hacking and much more. Members of the Armed Services who are accused of committing a computer crime may face both command and criminal investigations which can lead to demotion, court martial, dishonorable discharge, and criminal penalties such as fines and prison time. Any serviceman or woman who has been accused of committing a computer crime should seek the advice of a lawyer as soon as possible in order to avoid eminent disaster in terms of military career and possible conviction.
It can be difficult to adequately defend against accusations of computer crimes in a military investigation. Defenses in these kind of cases are highly technical and specialized, and require an attorney who is both familiar with the offenses and the experts needed to cast doubt on the government’s evidence. Additionally, the law has undergone significant developments in these areas within the past few years, and it will be necessary for an accused to have a military criminal attorney who is well versed and aware of these changes.
