The term “kidnapping” is defined as unlawfully removing a person from one place and taking them to another, and confining him/her in isolation with one or more of these intentions:
- Ransom or reward, or as a hostage shield.
- To facilitate a felony, or flight from a felony.
- To inflict injury on them, or to terrorize the alleged victim or someone else.
- To interfere with the performance of government or political officials.
In a true kidnapping, the offender uses force, threats or deception to move the victim. If the alleged victim went along voluntarily, then it is not kidnapping. The Schill Law Group will carefully review every aspect of your case to determine if there is evidence for all you have been accused of and to determine if your case truly meets the kidnapping definition.
Kidnapping is a felony of the first degree, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison. If you have been questioned by the police or arrested, it is crucial that you immediately retain an experienced defense attorney from the Schill Law Group who understands kidnapping law. As with most criminal charges, you should not talk to the police or prosecutors without your attorney by your side. What you say can be taken out of context and used against you.
