The penalties for internet crimes vary, and will be based upon the level of financial damage suffered by the victim, the prior criminal record of the alleged perpetrator, and whether the case involved sex crimes against children. Internet fraud that involves banks, mortgage companies or insurance are most often filed in federal court. Crimes related to child pornography possession or distribution through the internet carry extremely heavy consequences, usually including fines, prison time and the requirement to register as a sex offender.
