Whether it is at home or work, most people have a computer. Daily activities and work tasks are completed on these devices; however, because this technology can allow a person to complete such a wide range of activities, it is possible for a person to face allegations of misusing their computers. In other words, a person in Florida and elsewhere could be accused of an Internet crime that carries with it harsh penalties.
When an individual in Florida is accused of an Internet or computer crime, it is likely that his or her computer will be seized. Like any other search and seizure, certain procedures must be followed to ensure a proper and legal search and seizure took place. Failure to do so could present issues in the case, helping a defendant begin the process of suppressing evidence and poking holes in the case.
