With the growth of the internet, wired and wireless networks, web cameras, and the easy availability of information, smart phones, and tablets, opportunities for computer-based crime are growing, and law enforcement is devoting increasing resources to these cases. Commonly referred to as Cyber Crime, these violations involve activity where a computer or network is the source, tool, target, or place of a crime.
Also on the rise are false allegations of cyber stalking, snooping, and improper access to personal information. Too often, “online relationships” that result in hurt feelings lead to allegations of impropriety and sometimes criminal prosecutions. Due to the commerce clause of the federal constitution, nearly any crime involving a computer can be brought in federal court, as well as in state court.
