Illinois Internet Crime Attorneys

DuPage County Criminal Defense Lawyers Representing Those Accused of Internet Crimes in Naperville, West Chicago, Warrenville, Wheaton and all of Illinois

At the criminal defense law firm of Michael T. Norris and John W. Callahan, we defend people charged with Internet crimes such as phishing, eBay fraud, hacking, identity theft, and malicious distribution of a computer virus.

Many Internet crimes, like other white-collar crimes, are felonies and carry mandatory minimum sentences. A mandatory minimum sentence means the judge would be required to send you to prison for a specified period of time with no possibility of probation or early parole.

A conviction for an Internet crime would also make it hard for you to get a job after you get out of prison. Few employers would consider hiring someone who has a conviction for eBay fraud or identity theft. To preserve your freedom and future, you need an Internet crimes defense lawyer who is willing to fight for you. Attorneys Michael T. Norris and John W. Callahan have obtained dismissals and not guilty verdicts in dozens of felony cases, including Internet crimes.

Internet Sex Crimes

Internet sex crimes, especially those involving children such as possession of child pornography or solicitation of minors in chat rooms, elicit more outrage and condemnation than almost any other type of crime. The accused are presented as leading double lives and unworthy of the basic constitutional freedoms, which often, we take for granted.

Like other sex offenses, Internet sex crimes carry the possibility of lifetime registration as sex offender after you have served your sentence. Confronted with the prospect of a lengthy prison sentence and a lifetime of monitoring and registration, you need an attorney who is willing to fight for you and who can poke holes in the prosecution's case.

The defense for many sex crimes related to chat room conversations is entrapment, since police officers posing as minors are often very pushy to meet the adult. We have also defended child pornography cases by showing that other people had access to the computer and that our client was somewhere else when the images were downloaded.
