Riverside Kidnapping Lawyer

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 Riverside criminal defense attorney immediately if you have been charged with kidnapping.

If an incidence of kidnapping is established, other factors as also considered to establish the severity of the crime, as well as sentencing. These can include whether or not the victim was harmed and the duration and conditions of their confinement.
