Computer Crimes

It is a crime to willfully access or use a computer without authorization. Computer crimes can range in severity from misdemeanors such as simply accessing a computer you have no authorization to access to felonies which include:

  • schemes to defraud, alter, damage or destroy hardware and software
  • stealing passwords
  • gaining access to computer systems and networks
  • abusing, annoying, threatening or harassing another person
  • putting another person in physical harm or danger

In additional to a criminal lawsuit, you or your loved one may also be facing a civil lawsuit, which the victim may bring about against anyone convicted of a violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.

Penalties from the criminal lawsuit range from fines of up to $5,000 and up to 30 days in a county jail for a misdemeanor and up to a $100,000 fine and 10 years in a State Penitentiary for a felony.
