Computer crime laws in Pennsylvania

When it comes to Pennsylvania computer crime laws, you may not fully understand what you are and are not permitted to do in regards to the law. In short, the law prohibits many types of activity related to computers, computer networks, and computer systems. As time goes by and technology advances, state laws will adjust as well.

When a person takes part in an intentional act to disrupt services through a computer, it is considered a crime. Furthermore, state law also bars the unauthorized interference with the transmission of information or data.

What about the sale of computer programs or software that damage or disrupt computers, systems, or networks? Once again, this is a criminal act.

With so many computer crime laws in Pennsylvania, it can be a challenge to understand how each one is punished. Generally speaking, crimes are charged as third degree felonies. State law allows for a person to be sentenced to a maximum of seven years in prison if convicted of a third degree felony.

Along with imprisonment, the law can also require a person to provide restitution for any damages suffered by the victims of the crime.
