Computer and Internet Crimes are serious criminal offenses in Mississippi and can carry severe penalties. Conviction of a computer or Internet crime can affect your freedom, your right to possess firearms, and your ability to get credit, employment, housing, government contracts, security clearances, and other benefits. If the offense is of a sexual nature, conviction can also result in a requirement to register as a sex offender. Depending on the facts surrounding the allegations, legal and factual defenses may be available.

In today’s modern world, computers are broadly defined to include home computers and laptops, business computer systems, and most cell phones, gaming consoles, and other devices used to store data or access the Internet. Prosecutions involving computer crimes generally rely on three kinds of direct and circumstantial evidence:


  • Computer forensics (such as metadata attached to digital images or IP data corresponding to chat logs);


  • Relevant actions of the defendant (such as possessing or accessing a particular computer or being at a particular location during a relevant time period); and


  • Statements of the defendant to law enforcement or third persons (such as admitting to using a particular computer during a relevant time period).
