Kidnapping is an aggravated form of false imprisonment that generally involves using deceit, threats, or force to take someone somewhere and confining them there against their will or without their consent.
Forcible confinement generally involves seizing, confining, or imprisoning someone without lawful authority.
Kidnapping and Forcible Confinement charges are serious and should be addressed by a lawyer as soon as you become aware of the fact that you have been charged or are under investigation. While the sentence for a kidnapping or forcible confinement conviction will depend on the circumstances of each individual case, a conviction for any criminal offence will result in a criminal record, which can negatively impact many areas of your life including your reputation, your ability to maintain or obtain employment, and your ability to travel to other countries like the United States. In addition, a conviction for these offences may carry other penalties, including a potentially lengthy term of imprisonment.
Now is not the time to delay! Your reputation, future, and freedom are too important. In all cases, you are well advised to immediately speak with Mr. Beckett so he can evaluate your case, get your side of the story, and relentlessly defend you against your charges.
