Criminal Use Of A Communications Facility
When a crime is committed that involves the use of a computer, tablet or smartphone, additional charges may be laid against the accused. If you live in or near Media, Pennsylvania, and you have been charged with “criminal use of a communication facility,” The Law Offices of Joseph Lesniak, LLC, can help.
Experienced And Effective Damage Mitigation
Criminal use of a communications facility is exactly what it sounds like: the use of a phone, fax, computer or any other communications device to commit a crime. Thus, this charge may be added to a wide range of other charges, including:
- Theft or embezzlement
- Harassment, including sexual harassment
- Accessing or distributing child pornography
- Sale of drugs (or any controlled substances)
- Cyberstalking or cyberbullying, including texting harassment
Because it is not the primary (lead) charge, there are significant opportunities for damage mitigation in such cases. Joseph Lesniak will work hard to have such charges dismissed, or have the penalties reduced, in order to control long-term damage to your reputation. Don’t let a bad situation get worse — let us be your advocates.
