What is Illegal Use of a Computer?

While most of the criminal code in Kentucky is located in the 500-534 section of Kentucky Revised Statutes, also defined as the Penal Code, many computer crimes and credit card fraud is still located in KRS §434.  Illegal use of a computer is defined: 434.845 - Unlawful access to a computer in the first degree. (1) A person is guilty of unlawful access to a computer in the first degree when he or she, without the effective consent of the owner, knowingly and willfully, directly or indirectly accesses, causes to be accessed, or attempts to access any computer software, computer program, data, computer, computer system, computer network, or any part thereof, for the purpose of: (a) Devising or executing any scheme or artifice to defraud; or (b) Obtaining money, property, or services for themselves or another by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises. (2) Unlawful access to a computer in the first degree is a Class C felony. Class C felony is punishable by 5-10 years in prison.  There are also lesser degrees of Unlawful access to a computer, as defined in KRS 434.850, 434.851 and 434.852.
