Computer Trespass in New York is an E Felony, carrying a penalty of one to four years in state prison.
It is defined as accessing a computer, network, or computer server for the purpose of committing or furthering another felony crime, or for the purpose of gaining access to computer material.
These days, most of us are walking around with small computers in our pockets or purses in the shape of smart phones, and they routinely connect to computer networks to download our emails, social media updates, and more.
In our homes, our private computers are often automatically connected to our private or business email accounts, and financial and other data we choose to store in “the cloud” and on web-based services.
It is surprisingly easy to find yourself on the wrong end of a Computer Trespass charge in New York, and the ramifications of conviction can wreck your life.
