Ocean County Cyber Crime Attorney
Cyber crimes are those crimes which are internet-related often referred to as computer crimes. These crimes happen in substantial numbers due to the amount of computer users throughout the world. Due to the varying nature of cyber crime, NJ law enforcement, as well as Federal law enforcement, created sectors to deal specifically with cyber crime.

For example NJ law enforcement has an Incident Response Unit (IRU), Cyber Crime Unit (CCU) and Internet Predatory Crimes Unit (IPCU); these units are specially trained to conduct investigations into cyber crimes. The IRU focuses on crimes that are done with computers, networks, smart phones and other technological devices used to commit cyber crime. The CCU focuses on the use of computers in fraud and identity theft. Finally, the IPCU focuses on investigations involving Internet-driven crimes against children such as trafficking in child pornography and on-line luring.

These investigations can be broad and unfortunately, innocent individuals are sometimes subject to investigation and arrest. Individuals that have not committed an internet-related offense may be accused of doing so.

With the speed at which technological innovation takes place, cyber crimes are ever changing and therefore sometimes the law does not specifically address the crime which an individual may have committed. However, generally speaking the law will address the crimes committed. For example most search and seizure law was decided well before the advent of the internet, however the well settled principals, case law and court rules allow the State to search computers and networks just as it can your home or car:

R. 3:5-2 permits the seizure of “any property.” The Rule provides: A search warrant may be issued to search for and seize any property including documents, books, papers and any other tangible objects, obtained in violation of the penal laws of this State or any other state; or possessed, controlled, designed or intended for use or which has been used in connection with any such violation; or constituting evidence of or tending to show any such violation.

In fact during the course of an investigation it may come to light that a computer is actively being used to commit cyber crimes. In this situation the state may seek a court order for the interception of the wire or electronic communications otherwise known as a “wiretap.” This is governed by the requirements set forth for the interception of wire or electronic communications pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2A:156A-1 et seq.

New Jersey has laws to address stored wire and electronic communications, which may be obtained by law enforcement, via N.J.S.A. 2A:156A-27, this law closely parallels the Stored Wire and Electronic Communications and Transactional Records Access Act 18 U.S.C.A. § 2701 et seq.

Law enforcement is limited in getting access to your Internet Service Providers (ISP) electronically stored information via N.J.S.A. 2A:156A-28, which prohibits the disclosure of the contents of a communication while in electronic storage by a person or entity providing an electronic communication service or remote commuting service to the public. However there are exceptions to this rule! Our Mercer County Cyber Crime attorneys are familiar with these laws, contact us for a free consultation.

Paul worked on a tax assessment case for my husband and I. Our town assessed our house and as a result our taxes were due to increase. Paul was excellent and time efficient. He fought our town to have the house re-assessed and as a result our taxes did not increase and we got are due for a refund from the township. Thanks so much for a job well done!

I've been extremely taken aback by the acrimonious demeanor I've read, in the reviews, regarding The law firm of Riviere Cresci & Singer but specifically Mr, Paul Riviere. Esq. I first became acquainted with Mr. Riviere after I suffered an automobile accident. I had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Riveire, along with other perspective attorney's, while looking for representation. After meeting with Mr. Reviere I knew instantly that he was the man I was going to hire. Mr. Riviere proved to be the right choice not only from his business acumen but his personal interest as well in my health and welfare. I would highly recommend this firm and Mr. Reviere if you are looking for an established firm with a history of excellent client-attorney interaction.
