Louisianans are living in a constantly changing world. The changes are particularly prevalent in the realm of technology. From the proliferation of smart phones to flying drones, new technologies are evolving quickly.
Sometimes the law may struggle to keep up with new technology but nonetheless the law must respond. As new technologies evolve, so too does the law’s interpretation of what may be legally permissible or not. For example, as this blog reported in a previous post, prosecutors may deem the taking of certain “selfie” photographs to be a federal crime, depending on the subject matter of the photograph.
Due to the ever-evolving nature of technology, it is important for someone who has been accused of a computer crime to have a well-prepared defense. The attorneys of Hymel Davis & Petersen can provide such a defense. They are not only skilled defense attorneys who can defend a client at trial, they can negotiate effectively with prosecutors to seek a potential reduction in charges or other plea negotiation favorable for their clients. They can provide the backing of excellent research, which is essential in light of the constantly advancing nature of those crimes that are interconnected with the use of technology.
Defending against a charge of computer fraud, for example, may take both the abilities of skilled researchers who can dissect the intricacies of a particular crime, as well as the deft hand of experienced litigators to present a defense to the court.
