Types of Texas internet crime charges and penalties

Texas law encompasses a wide range of internet-related offenses and so-called computer crimes, each carrying its own set of potential penalties. Understanding these charges is crucial in building a solid defense strategy:

  • Cyberbullying and harassment. The digital realm has given rise to new forms of harassment and bullying. Cyberbullying, cyberstalking, or online harassment charges can result in severe consequences, including fines, restraining orders, or even jail time.
  • Identity theft. Unauthorized use of someone's personal information with the intent to commit fraud is considered identity theft. Penalties can range from fines to substantial prison sentences, depending on the scale of the crime.
  • Hacking and unauthorized access. Gaining unauthorized access to computer systems, networks, or data is a serious offense. Depending on the extent of the breach and damage caused, penalties can include imprisonment, fines, and restitution.
  • Online fraud and scams. Engaging in online scams, such as phishing, pyramid schemes, or fraudulent online auctions, can lead to charges of online fraud. Penalties may include substantial fines and imprisonment.
  • Child exploitation. Possessing, distributing, or creating explicit materials involving minors is a grave crime. Convictions can result in significant prison time, hefty fines, and mandatory sex offender registration.
  • Copyright infringement. Violating copyright laws by reproducing, distributing, or sharing copyrighted material without authorization can lead to legal repercussions, including fines and possible civil suits.

Other cybercrimes in Texas include breach of computer security, online solicitation of a minor, electronic access interference, data tampering, online impersonation, electronic vote tampering, and unlawful decryption.
