Kidnapping Lawyer in Encino
How We Can Defend You Against a Kidnapping Charge
Kidnapping is defined as moving a person a substantial distance without that person's consent by using force or fear. Most often a kidnapping scenario is associated with a ransom, and it is true that this occurs. A different reason for an individual to kidnap could be a father taking his child away from his wife as a form of revenge. One other could be a robber holding a gun to a driver's head and ordering them to drive the car away from the store that the kidnapper just robed.
Kidnapping charges if convicted will result in a felony conviction; this felony conviction in California will result in a state prison sentence of up to eight years. There are several defenses that can be made against a kidnapping charge, one of which is that the alleged victim consented to the transportation.
