Have You Been Arrested For Kidnapping?

Kidnapping is essentially the crime of transporting another to another location without their consent or confining them to an area without their permission. Kidnapping is a serious criminal offense and is penalized harshly in Brevard County. Kidnapping charges are against both state and federal laws, and the individual may be tried in either court.

  • Kidnapping is sometimes carried out for another purpose and may be coupled with:
  • Rape
  • Ransom
  • Robbery
  • Extortion

If this is the case, the charge will most likely be aggravated kidnapping. A parent of a child may be charged with kidnapping if he or she left a specified area with his or her child without the authority of the court. A Brevard County criminal defense lawyer should be contacted immediately if you or a loved one has been wrongfully accused of kidnapping.
