Kidnapping is a felony, which is subject to severe penalties, including imprisonment. The crime of kidnapping involves moving a victim against his or her will and/or keeping the victim confined to a specific space or area. If you are charged with kidnapping it is imperative that you exercise your right to remain silent and contact a criminal defense attorney immediately.
At the Robinson Law Firm, P.A., one of our first actions will be to demand the evidence the state plans to use against you. From there, we can review all factors involved and may find details or omissions that could result in charges being dropped or reduced.
KIDNAPPING AND YOUR DEFENSE
Basic points to address in a kidnapping case include the distance the alleged victim was moved and/or the details of the alleged confinement and whether or not the events, which occurred, were actually against the alleged victim’s will. It is possible for a non-custodial parent to be charged with kidnapping their own child. In this case, the agreements made between the parents and any dubious motives of the custodial parent should also be reviewed.
Several other details will affect the outcome of a kidnapping case. The magnitude and duration of the event will be considered. Whether or not any harm was inflicted or ransom demands were made. Whatever the circumstances, the most important action you can take is to retain a kidnapping attorney at the Robinson Law Firm who will use innovation and expertise to defend you.
