Search and Seizure of your Computer
I tell my clients there are hundreds of ways your computer records everything you do on the Internet. Although it is possible to clear some traces of chat rooms you visit or files you download, it is almost never possible to completely clear all computer records. When police search your computer, they review files hidden deep within your hard drive, looking for evidence to use against you.
However, it can take months for the police to get the information they need from your hard drive. In the meantime, you are forced to continue on without the computer you needed for work or school. You are also forced to wait and worry about what might happen.
It may be tempting to ignore the situation, to cover things up or pretend that the matter isn’t serious. But the truth is that it’s best to act before Internet sex crime charges have been filed. If your computer has been seized by police, it is critical to take immediate action to protect yourself and your family. Contact me — Salt Lake City computer and seizure attorney Catherine Cleveland — for a confidential consultation about your options.
Thorough and Complete Salt Lake City Criminal Defense
I offer non-judgmental representation that is thorough and complete. I may be able to contact the District Attorney’s Office, locate your computer and discover what information the government has about you. Depending on your situation, I may be able to proactively negotiate with prosecutors and police for you while I invoke your First Amendment right to silence and your Sixth Amendment right to an attorney.
Talking with me is a much better option than handling the matter by yourself. If you talk with detectives directly, you could mistakenly say things you never meant. You may make mistakes and get yourself in even more trouble than you currently face.
