The internet was launched on March 2, 1989. That was nearly 3 decades ago. Since then, cyber crime has become a major source of crime online and offline, and cyber space has become a major avenue for law enforcement and prosecutors to pursue and investigate charges in. Some of these crimes are just the digital version of previously known criminal activity and some are entirely new crimes that did not exist as a thing, let a lone as a crime just some years ago. Texas Penal Code Title 7, chapter 33 deals with computer crimes in its entirety.

Nowadays, cyber crime can be minor or serious in nature and can affect people of all ages, genders, and walks of life. Cyber and internet crimes' legal defense is particularly challenging considering the digital and often redundant trails of evidence online. Punishment for such crimes often involves incarceration, fines, and full restitution. Such internet and cyber crimes can include but are not limited to:

  • Possession, production and transmission of illegal pornography or obscene material

  • Possession, production and transmission of child pornography

  • Solicitation of a minor

  • Cyber bullying

  • Cyber harassment

  • Cyber stalking

  • Computer and internet fraud

  • Digital & internet based identity theft

  • Hacking and unauthorized access and intrusion to 3rd party and/or legally protected computer networks or devices

  • Online impersonation (such as email phishing, spoofing, and spear-phishing crimes, or fraudulent and look alike websites, even fake and malicious social media profiles in another entity's name with intent to defraud, intimidate, or threaten ANY persons or entities)

  • Digital copyright and trademark infringement

  • Digital gambling crimes

  • Cyber blackmail and extortion

  • Digital and software piracy

  • Creation and dissemination of malicious code or information such as viruses, malware, spyware, or ransomware
