Colorado Law: Internet Crimes
The world of technology has brought with it a host of Internet-related crimes. In addition to the hacking of computers and spread of viruses, the Internet allows people to readily share information, such as pornography. While adult pornography is legal in Colorado, the possession of child pornography is not. Another illegal use of the Internet is the attempted luring of minors to engage in sexual acts. While states have historically been able to handle in-state criminal activities, the Internet allows acts committed in a state to be shared world-wide in a matter of seconds.
Accordingly, the federal authorities are often involved in Internet crimes, particularly where the criminal act is alleged to have occurred in various states through the use of the Internet. Experts are often employed in Internet crimes, who are able to decipher through inspecting a person’s hard drive what a person is guilty of doing- or not guilty of doing.
