Michigan Computer Crimes Laws

As technology becomes more sophisticated and accessible to the general public, so do the methods used for theft, identity fraud, and other computer crimes. Michigan computer crime laws prohibit the unauthorized access into a computer or network, including the insertion or attachment of code or the destruction of a computer system. The law is relatively broad and covers most instances where a computer is used to commit any kind of crime.
