Federal Cyber Crime Defense Attorney

Defending Clients Against Online Criminal Allegations

Since the U.S. government and companies throughout the country have been the target of cyber crimes in recent years, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are paying more attention to these types of criminal offenses than ever before. Cyber crimes are punishable by significantly harsh federal penalties, such as a lengthy federal prison sentence and fines worth millions of dollars.

If you are facing federal prosecution or under federal investigation for cyber crimes in Texas, look no further than Attorney Peter Barrett. With more than 25 years of experience and thousands of cases – including over 100 jury trials – handled throughout his career, he has a thorough understanding of the federal criminal justice system to protect your rights and freedom.

Do not hesitate to contact us today at (214) 307-8667 to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer.

Cryptocurrency & Cyber Crimes

From Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin (LTC) to Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP), cryptocurrency and the blockchain technology were created in 2009 as the first ever decentralized virtual money, allowing individuals to transfer funds without going through a bank or third-party service to eliminate a main authority and reduce transaction fees. Additionally, cryptocurrency users like those who have Bitcoin can remain anonymous and no one can see their digital wallet.

While digital currencies have established a whole new way to engage in e-commerce, they are also used to make illegal purchases and sales, as well as commit other forms of cyber crimes. Since cryptocurrency involves internet transactions, nearly all crypto-related cyber crimes are prosecuted by federal law.

The following are the most common types of crypto-related cyber crimes our firm handles:

  • Cryptocurrency theft

  • Cryptocurrency fraud

  • Bitcoin money laundering

  • Hacking cryptocurrency infrastructure

  • Using cryptocurrency to commit drug trafficking, child pornography, and other cyber crimes

Federal criminal penalties are substantially steep. For instance, wire fraud is punishable by imprisonment for up to 20 years and a maximum fine of $250,000.

Mail fraud can also result in a maximum federal prison term of 20 years, while grand larceny carries a prison sentence of up to seven and a half years. In addition, federal crimes are associated with mandatory minimum sentences, which means you will be ordered to serve some time behind bars if you are convicted.

Ready to Fight for You Today!

Since cryptocurrencies are a relatively new phenomenon, it can be extremely hard for federal authorities to implicate someone beyond a reasonable doubt in a cyber crime. Let Attorney Barrett investigate the allegations/charges against you, collect and analyze evidence, negotiate with the prosecution, and help you get the best possible result in your case.
