California Identity Theft and Internet Sex Crimes Attorney
Identity theft is a crime that has grown in its frequency and complexity. East Bay-based attorney Joe Motta defends clients throughout the area, including Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood, Discovery Bay, Oakland, Concord and Walnut Creek.
Defending Clients Against Identity Theft and Child Pornography Charges
The act of stealing someone’s identity or manufacturing a new identity goes far beyond stealing mail from a mailbox. The United States Secret Service estimated that at least 700,000 people were victims of identity theft in 2000. Child pornography can be easily obtained through a computer, sometimes without the knowledge of the person receiving it. The advent and growth of the internet has allowed individuals to not only commit serious crimes, but also face false allegations of identity theft or possession of child pornography.
Aggressively Advocating For Clients Charged with Identity Theft
As a former Contra Costa County prosecutor and skilled criminal defense attorney, Joe Motta has handled complex computer crimes involving identity theft or child pornography. Particularly in crimes involving children, you must be aware that your best strategy is to say nothing during and following your arrest. Let Joe be the first person you speak to so he can help. Talking to the police or prosecutors is not advised and could compromise your case.
