You are required to complete a substantive research paper assignment comprising of 5 pages Microsoft Word document.
Conduct research on atleast two cybercrime court cases, decisions and or appeals to cybercrime case that took place within the last 10 years.
Identify the type of cybercrime, how the crime was committed, and the motivation behind the crime (revenge, financial gain, exploitation, sexual satisfaction, etc.).
Discuss the issues encountered and how the prosecution established jurisdiction; for example, is it the “bad guy’s” location or the location of his co-conspirators, the location of Internet Service Provider (ISP), where the victim(s) are located, etc., the admissibility of evidence, and how the evidence was obtained (consent or search warrant). Be sure to include the defense counsel’s arguments and appeals.
Identify the conviction and sentencing, what U.S. code or state law was applied to the crime and the sentence received by the criminal or criminal enterprise.

The major impacts of cybercrime on the criminal justice system should also be discussed.
Lastly, discuss the emerging trends in cybercrimes and what law enforcement and the private sector are doing to combat these crimes.
