What Is Illegal Access to a Computer?

Kentucky law makes illegal unlawful access or use of a computer.  The charges can range from a B misdemeanor for Unlawful access to a computer from 1st to 4th degree as well as unlawful use of computer information.  All crimes are located in the Offenses to Property by Fraud section 434 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes. KRS defines illegal use of a computer as follows: 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. A class C felony is punishable by 5-10 years in prison. If you have been charged with unlawful access to a computer or any other crime in Northern Kentucky, you should speak with an attorney.  For consultation in Northern Kentucky, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453 or email at [email protected].
