A Look at Kidnapping and Unlawful Restraint Charges
Posted By The Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Grass || 27-Oct-2015
Kidnapping and unlawful restraint charges are serious criminal offenses that can result in severe legal penalties. A criminal defense lawyer may need to defend you against charges of unlawful restraint if you’re accused of preventing a person from making physical movements without their consent. Unlawful restraint may be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or felony in Texas, depending on the circumstances. Additionally, you may be charged with abduction if you’re suspected of having taken someone and made attempts to prevent that person’s discovery or rescue. Abduction might involve attempted acts of violence or threats of violence.
Other felony charges include aggravated kidnapping. Aggravated kidnapping is the kidnapping of a person with the intent to inflict bodily injury, commit sex crimes, demand a ransom, or use the person as a hostage.
