Unlawful internet posting in Michigan occurs when the defendant posts a message without the consent of another person. If you’re under investigation, speak with an unlawful internet posting attorney immediately.
Unlawful internet posting carries a felony punishment of not more than two years imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
The punishment increases if the message is posted in violation of a court order or the posting causes a credible threat to the victim or victim’s family.
There are effective defenses to these charges. The prosecution has to prove that the internet posting would have caused a person to receive two or more contacts without consent.
What if the victim would have consented to the contact?
The prosecution must prove the accused had knowledge that the victim wouldn’t have wanted these contacts.
In some cases, they do consent to some types of contact.
These case facts and defenses vary individually.
It’s important that your attorney be creative with the possible defenses.

Barton was amazing and I could not have had the positive outcome without his guidance. His team is prompt and great to work with. He even called while out of the country on vacation, which I feel shows he went above and beyond what someone might expect from their attorney. Experienced and cares! I would highly recommend Barton!
Very professional. I came and spoke to Barton Morris about my situation and my case. I asked him if he was willing to help me. He asked about the details and my background and history. He give me a positive confidence he can help me and my odds. His price is reasonable. He’s not one of those hole in the wall lawyers who treat you as a number. You are a human being with a personal life. You treats you as a valued client no matter how big or small the case.
I had Mike Norman as my lawyer for a case. I just wanted to come on here and thank him for doing his best for me. I am grateful during this stressful time. I’ve used Barton Morris as a lawyer about 11 years ago and he was awesome which is why we came back. I do recommend!
Extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when it comes to navigating the complicated nature of cannabis businesses in Michigan. I met with Barton where he answered all my questions about the pre-qualification application, and was prompt in answering subsequent questions through email after the meeting was completed. I certainly plan to continue utilize Barton’s knowledge in the future.
Just sitting here on my balcony. A bit chilly but sunny and beautiful. I am ever so grateful to have 100% freedom. Wasn’t sure I would ever meet this day. Hiring you(and your team) was the best decision I have ever made. You are a true master of your trade. As you sit with your beautiful family on Thanksgiving know that this year I am truly thankful of my freedom and the choice to hire Barton Morris. Thanks again. I will never forget what you have done for me.
