Determined Miami Kidnapping Defense Lawyer
The term “kidnapping” means confining, abducting, or imprisoning another person, against his or her will, without lawful authority, either forcibly, secretly, or by threat, and with intent to either hold for ransom, as a hostage, facilitate the commission of any felony, inflict bodily harm, or interfere with the performance of any governmental or political function.
It can also include the confinement of a child under the age of 13, against his or her will, and without the consent of a parent or guardian. Kidnapping is a first-degree felony in Florida, and is not taken lightly by the government. If the offense involves a child under the age of 13, and, in the course of the kidnapping, there is, for example, either aggravated child abuse, sexual battery, or lewd or lascivious conduct, it may be punishable by up to life imprisonment. Don’t fight these cases alone. The Miami assault lawyer at Redavid Law PLLC is ready to help you fight these charges.
