Additionally, computer crimes cases are highly complex and investigators occasionally perform illegal search and seizure methods that can render evidence ineligible to be used in court.

In many cases, suspects try to defend themselves to the police before and after they are placed in custody, but this is one of the worst things you can do in these cases.
