As computer-related crime becomes more widespread globally, both scholarly and journalistic accounts tend to focus on the ways in which the crime has been committed and how it could have been prevented. Very little has been written about what follows: the capture, possible extradition, prosecution, sentencing and incarceration of the cyber criminal. This book provides the first international study of the manner in which cyber-criminals have been dealt with by the judicial process in recent times. Some of the most prominent cases from around the globe have been presented in an attempt to discern trends in the disposition of cases and common factors and problems that emerged during the processes of prosecution, trial and sentencing. This is a valuable resource for all those who seek to recall the facts of some of the world's most famous prosecutions and to know the reasons why particular sentences were imposed.
