Charged with Kidnapping in Alabama? Help is Here
Kidnapping and Unlawful Imprisonment charges range significantly in seriousness and penalties. These charges can include anything from:
- depriving someone’s liberty by restraining them for a short period of time
- holding them against their will
- abducting them
- simply preventing them from leaving a place
In other cases, kidnapping involves children, where one parent may take the child as the result of a dispute. Depending on the circumstances that surround the alleged offense, you could be charged with other crimes as well.
Use of a firearm causing injury during the crime, or holding the victim for ransom or financial gain can create additional charges and increase the penalties you face.
In the event that a kidnapping crosses state lines, federal statutes and penalties also may apply.
The penalties for these crimes can be serious, and if you have been charged with kidnapping, it is imperative that you have a seasoned attorney to represent your interests and ensure your right to a fair trial is protected.
In kidnapping cases, seasoned attorneys may be able to raise several defenses. They can pinpoint the elements of the case that cast doubt on the various elements the prosecution is required to prove.
In child custody cases, they can bring to light the wishes of child if they are of a certain age, mitigating against a finding of kidnapping.
