East Hartford White Collar Crime Lawyers
Connecticut Computer Crime Attorneys
The majority of the companies in the world have a main goal of making money, while cutting costs and overhead. If you are an employee who is directly responsible for helping the company profits to increase and you are not performing up to task, your job may be on the line. Sometimes the pressures and circumstances are so intense that you will do whatever is necessary to keep your job and sometimes those actions can be illegal.
If this is the case, you should contact a white collar crime lawyer immediately. Many times, the individuals charged with a white collar crime do not realize that they may face serious state and/or federal criminal penalties or that there are potential defenses to these alleged crimes. The Woolf & Macci, LLC, Attorneys at Law, has handled hundreds of criminal defense cases in every Connecticut state and federal court.

Many law enforcement authorities have special units devoted entirely to this area of the law who are highly trained to find almost anything contained on a computer’s hard drive. Notwithstanding all the software programs available today, which claim their ability to “erase” a hard drive’s history and content, these don’t totally eliminate the history from highly skilled law enforcement investigators who are trained to look and reach into places on a computer’s hard drive unknown to the average or even the above average computer savvy person.
Most computer related crimes are felonies and carry very lengthy prison terms. Therefore, it is critical to have skilled legal counsel.
Destruction of Evidence and Witness Tampering
When a criminal investigation arises, it can be tempting to eliminate potential evidence and/or tamper with potential witnesses, which may be detrimental to their case. However, it is important to understand the rules regarding evidence or witness tampering. Individuals who destroy materials, who knew – or should have known – that the materials ought to be used or may be used as evidence to a crime, are in fact committing a separate and distinct crime by destroying the evidence or tampering with witnesses.
