Computer Hacking

By definition, computer hacking involves the illegal access of a computer system’s files. Conspiracy to commit computer hacking is a crime that takes place when someone acts, agrees, or performs with intent to access a computer without prior authorization.
Conspiracy is comparatively easy for prosecutors to prove because the law only requires the testimony of one party and does not need proof of the terms used in an agreement to commit a crime. An overt act must be alleged and proved to have been committed by one of the conspirators.
