With the growth of the Internet for financial transactions and entertainment has come a growth in the number of people accused of Internet crimes. If you are under investigation for or have been charged with an Internet crime, it's important to select a defense attorney who understands both the law and computers.

At the law firm of Hathaway Sprague Law, P.A., in Tallahassee, Florida, we understand how the state will use forensic evidence to attempt to convict you of a crime. We will use our knowledge of computers and computer networks to defend you.

Defense attorney Wayne Sprague is a former Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). He has a master's degree in computer science from Florida State University. He was a systems and network administrator and was on the computer science faculty of the college for five years.

Attorney Sprague uses his computer background to defend people charged with all types of Internet crimes, including:

  • Hacking or unauthorized access
  • Using a state computer for improper purposes
  • Identify theft
  • Phishing
  • Embezzlement
  • Credit card theft
  • Downloading pirated music and movies

In traditional white collar crimes, prosecutors use a paper trail of evidence to attempt to prove charges against a defendant. In Internet crimes, evidence is usually collected from data contained on your hard drive. Forensic examiners are able to recover evidence on computer hard drives even after those files have been erased.
