Powerful Representation for Individuals Facing Charges
Miami criminal defense attorneys are led by attorney David Rothman, a former prosecutor who is also a board-certified
criminal defense specialist. Beginning with the initial advice for a client
and continuing through representation at pre-trial hearings, trial, and
appeals, we are at all times aware of the risks our clients face if they
are even charged with an online crime. We will do all we can to protect
our client's reputation and employment during the legal process.
Internet crimes encompass a wide range of charges, including but not limited to:
Child Pornography: You can be prosecuted for downloading allegedly pornographic or obscene
materials, such as child porn, or for possessing such materials at home
or at work. Depending on the charges and the evidence, we may defend you
by showing that the material was not obscene and therefore not illegal,
that the wrong person was arrested, or that the evidence was collected
in an illegal search and seizure, and is therefore inadmissible. Charges
involving possession or distribution of child pornography can destroy
your future if not handled appropriately. Make sure you have a skilled
lawyer on your side.
Online Child Solicitation: When investigating charges involving the solicitation of a minor over the
Internet, our firm evaluates techniques that law enforcement used in obtaining
evidence. Many times, these cases arise from an online conversation between
the individual and an undercover agent in an Internet chat room. We work
to prove that the conduct was illegal entrapment and that the evidence,
therefore, cannot be used against our client.
Internet Fraud / Cyber Fraud: Charges of using the Internet to commit fraud may stem from solicitations
for online investments, alleged pyramid scams, or offers to employ people
to work from home, particularly if the offer suggests a guaranteed return.
One aspect of our investigation as defense counsel would be to examine
the charges and the evidence to determine if government agents working
undercover on the Internet actually engaged in illegal entrapment. Other
computer fraud charges involve
online identity theft and
credit card fraud.
Internet Gambling: One of the largest online economic activities is Internet gambling. Sometimes
it is unclear whether the activities are illegal. If this factor is in
dispute in your situation, our lawyers will work with you to gather proof
that no crime has been committed.
Online Pharmacies and Drug Sales: Our lawyers have represented pharmacies and doctors accused of illegal
involvement in online sales of prescription drugs.
