Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana

15Dec

A Connecticut man affiliated with a hacking group was arrested Tuesday on federal charges for an attack on a website belonging to Kiss bandmember Gene Simmons.  Kevin Poe was indicted in Los Angeles on one count of conspiracy and one count of unauthorized impairment of a protected computer.   If convicted of both charges, he could face up to 15 years in prison.

Poe and others linked to the Anonymous hacking group allegedly conducted a “denial of service” attack over a five-day period last October against Simmons’ computer systems, sending tens of thousands of electronic requests designed to overload the server, shutting down www.genesimmons.com.

No other arrests have been made.

There is increasing public pressure for vigorous prosecution of crimes deriving from the Internet, which requires strong criminal defense lawyers to protect the rights of the accused. If you have been accused of computer crimes in Louisiana, also known as Internet crimes or cyber crimes, contact Baton Rouge Criminal Defense Attorney Carl Barkemeyer.   Attorney Barkemeyer’s Baton Rouge law office handles state and federal charges including, Internet fraud, identity theft, and computer hacking.
