Kidnapping is punished harshly as it represents a threat to the safety of our children and ourselves.

Penalties for Kidnapping

Another aspect of kidnapping or abduction law pertains to the notion of false imprisonment. False imprisonment entails handling another individual against his or her will. Examples of false imprisonment include refusing to allow an individual out of your car when requested, taking a hostage for leverage in a given situation, and not allowing someone to exit a room or building. Kidnapping or false imprisonment charges when related to domestic violence or abuse take of an escalated form.

Individuals convicted of kidnapping in these instances can face the following penalties:

  • A lengthy prison sentence
  • Loss of child custody
  • Loss of visitation rights
  • A permanent criminal record

Having a kidnapping charge on your criminal record will make it exceedingly difficult to find gainful employment, advance your career, and be approved for housing and financing. With so much at stake, you cannot afford to face your charges without an experienced kidnapping lawyer at your side. Call our firm as soon as possible to assess your charges with a professional and begin building a strong defense.
