Penalties for Internet Crimes

Over the years, the penalties for Internet crimes have become more severe in Wisconsin and across this country. As Internet crimes have increased, so have the penalties associated with these offenses. The courts appear to be taking a more stringent look at these cases due to the proliferation and use of the Internet over time.

Depending on the type of cybercrime alleged to have been committed, you could face:

  • Many years in prison in the Federal system
  • Be required to pay large fines
  • Restitution to your victims
  • Court costs/fees.

In addition to any criminal penalties, an accused could face a civil lawsuit from the victim(s) of the crime whether it was against an individual or business entity.

In some cases, a judge may be more lenient depending on the nature of the crime and the size of the Internet crime organization. Accordingly, if you have been charged with an Internet crime in Milwaukee or Wisconsin, it is absolutely necessary for you to be represented by a lawyer who knows about Internet crimes and how to properly defend against them.
