Internet crime legal representation

Arrested for internet or social media crime

Being arrested by the police for an internet or social media crime is likely to be a turbulent period of time for most normal people. It is our job to help our clients successfully navigate their way through the legal, technological and often the emotional paths, following an arrest by the police for internet related criminal offences.

Legal representation following an arrest for malicious communication crime

Often, when the police arrest a suspect for social media related crimes, there will be little time to prepare or to find a solicitor who has sufficient expertise in internet law. If you, or someone you know, has been arrested for a crime which involves communication on the internet or through a mobile phone, it is most likely that the police investigation will be centred upon malicious communications and harassment offences.

Most criminal defence accredited lawyers have expertise in general criminal law, whilst all our criminal defence lawyers, who are accredited to represent detainees at the police station, are experts in internet and social media law and have experience of at least 22 years in successfully representing clients at the police station.

Following the arrest, with the dedicated support of our expert internet lawyers, we would hope that the matter will result in no further action being taking by the police, but in the unlikely event that the case proceeds to court, we provide assistance, support and excellent legal representation throughout the legal proceedings. Our aim is to bring you a not guilty verdict.

Legal representation following an arrest for an offence under the Malicious Communications Act 1988

Malicious communication may occur when an individual sends a letter, electronic communication or article of any description to another person which includes a message that is indecent or grossly offensive, a threat of any kind (or a suggested threat) or information that the sender knows is false.

The individual might be guilty of an offence under the Malicious Communications Act 1988, if the the purpose of sending the message was to cause distress or anxiety to the recipient. The intention of the sender is important and often it is during the questioning by the police that the sender reveals his or her true intentions. This is why securing safe legal representation at the police station is so crucial for the success of the case.

Legal representation following an arrest for Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003

An offence under Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 might occur where a person sends (or intends to send) any public electronic communications network, a message or other content that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character and they intend to cause another person annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety.

Legal representation for computer or internet crime

If you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offence involving allegations of computer or internet crime, our expert internet law solicitors are perfectly placed to assist and support you.

As the first law firm in the UK to practice internet law, our lawyers are highly knowledgeable and experienced in assisting clients on cases involving the back-end of the internet, technology computer and internet crime, hacking, unlawful access and theft through computers, maliciously creating and spreading viruses identity theft and impersonation.

If you are arrested or have been taken to court for computer crime you should have a solicitor who knows computers inside-out and who fully understand how technology works, in many cases, with higher degree of knowledge than your investigating police officers or the prosecuting lawyers.
