What constitutes kidnapping?
Kidnapping refers to the movement of a victim against his or her will or
the holding of the victim in a confined area. In certain circumstances
involving these acts, a parent without custody may be charged with the
kidnapping of his or her own child. Kidnapping is a felony and can thus
result in severe penalties including imprisonment. Contact a
