Email Hacking

Most people receive personal, private information via their email accounts. Thus, email hacking has become increasingly popular over the last few years. However, given the important information that can be stored in a person's email account, email hacking is a criminal offense. Whether the possible offender gained access to the account by figuring out the password, or simply viewed the account without permission, he or she is possibly guilty of email hacking.

Email Hacking Consequences

Like many cyber criminal offenses, email hacking can result in serious consequences. If you are charged with this crime, you could face a second- or third-degree felony if the plaintiff decides to press charges. A third-degree felony would include penalties such as:

  • Up to five years of jail time
  • Fines not exceeding $5,000

A second-degree offense increases the severity of the penalties. They include:

  • Up to 15 years of jail time
  • Fines at a maximum of $10,000

Either charge could result in serious damage to your personal and professional reputations. Thus, it is important to entrust your case to an attorney who understands the determination that it takes to defend your case.
