Evaluate crimes committed on the computer: who has jurisdiction? | 7010 | Northcentral University



Offenders use computers to engage in criminal behavior because they are better able to elude detection by law enforcement. Conventional crime deals such as prostitution and narcotics sales are often set up online in addition to more high-tech crimes such as embezzlement. Some of the more common criminal offenses committed via the use of the computer are identity theft and credit card fraud.

Prepare a white paper to identify and discuss three cybercrimes that were not listed in the weekly introduction or in this narrative. Explain which law enforcement agency has primary jurisdiction and how the investigations are completed. Conclude by determining how this type of crime is prosecuted.  

Support your assignment with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
