Have You Been Charged With Kidnapping?

By Michael V. Severo  Sep. 7, 2010 11:22a

One can be charged with kidnapping if they have taken an individual against their will and relocated them and then held them for a length of time including the use of force or placing them in fear of injury. Kidnapping is a serious crime in the state of California and is punishable by confinement in a state prison for three, five or eight years. Sometimes in heated domestic disputes and divorce cases, one partner will file kidnapping charges against the other if their child is removed from the home without their knowledge or agreement. If you have been charged with kidnapping in the Pasadena or surrounding area, you need to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
