DuPage County criminal defense attorneyTo those who are dealing with police for the first time, it is an unnerving process. There are legal terms and lingo that are unfamiliar. There often is someone at the station being disruptive, increasing tensions around the room. The fear of the unknown gets the best of many, and anxiety inhibits the ability to comprehend what is happening. With terms such as “arrested” and “charged” incorrectly used in daily conversation, understanding the circumstances becomes even more of a challenge. It is important to realize that once an arrest occurs, a criminal record is created that will follow you until you go through the expungement or sealing process.

Arrested

“You are under arrest! You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say…” the rest becomes a blur to the individual in handcuffs being dragged away to the patrol car.

Wheaton criminal defense lawyer, computer tamperingNot all crimes occur face-to-face. Certain crimes, such as computer tampering, can occur from anywhere over the Internet. Illinois law provides serious consequences for anyone convicted of tampering with someone else’s computer.

How Illinois Defines Computer Tampering

Computer tampering is unauthorized access to programs, data, or the computer, and it uses the access for fraudulent purposes or to damage another computer, data or program. This covers a wide range of activities. Computer tampering could include illegal sharing of movies and music or pranks such as changing the content of a website.

You can even be convicted of computer tampering if you have authorized access to a computer or network, if your actions exceed your authorization. In some cases, computer tampering charges will be brought in addition to other charges. For example, someone who is in charge of payroll can be charged with theft and computer tampering if they use their access to a computer to increase their paychecks when they were not authorized to do so.
