It is important to know that your choice of attorney is important because most attorneys have never tried a kidnapping charge.

An experienced kidnapping attorney can greatly increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome in your case. You are therefore encouraged to contact a San Diego criminal defense lawyer who is seasoned in handling these complicated kidnapping cases.

Understanding Kidnapping Charges

Kidnapping is the moving of another person a substantial distance against their will. A principle defense to a kidnapping charge is consent or at least a good faith belief that the other person consented. The person being moved may however withdraw his or her consent at any time. At that point it is kidnapping to continue to hold the person. A sentence for kidnapping is up to 8 years in prison. If the victim is abused or injured the penalties are higher.
