Are You Facing a Felony Charge?
Legislators have steadily increased the potential criminal liability associated with computer-related crimes over the years. However, it can be difficult to know what penalties you are facing. One reason for this is that, in many cases, the value of the property damage involved in your case will determine whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. For example:
- Class 3 misdemeanors: cases involving damage of less than $100
- Class 2 misdemeanors: cases involving damage of $100 to $500
- Class 4 felonies: cases involving damage of $500 to $15,000
- Class 3 felonies: Cases involving damage of more than $15,000
As you can see, the severity of the charges you can face escalate quickly. Class 2 felonies carry the potential of a prison sentence of up to 24 years imprisonment and fines of up to $1,000,000.
You Could Face Federal or State Charges
Most cyber crimes involve using the internet, an interstate communication network. This means that your offense could fall under federal jurisdiction, and you could be charged with a federal crime. Generally speaking, federal crimes carry harsher penalties than state crimes. In addition, federal law enforcement agencies generally have greater resources than state law enforcement to devote to investigating and trying your case.
That is not to say that you won’t be charged at the state level or shouldn’t take your case seriously if you are facing criminal charges under Colorado law. On the contrary, a conviction for a computer-related crime under Colorado law could result in years in prison.
At Rodemer | Kane, we have experience navigating the federal and state criminal justice systems. A criminal defense attorney from our firm understands what is at stake and what it takes to get results no matter where you have been charged.
