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.

'I am convinced that every prosecutor should read it, whether he or she is directly concerned by the issue or not, since even in cases where cyber crime is not directly involved, some techniques related to it may have been used or may have triggered off the commission of other offences.' International Association of Prosecutors Newsletter '... definitely a reference book giving us a thorough analysis of cyber crime. I am convinced that every prosecutor should read it, whether he or she is directly concerned by the issue or not, since even in cases where cyber crime is not directly involved, some techniques related to it may have been used or may have triggered off the commission of other offences.
