Kidnapping is a very serious crime with very serious consequences. Depending on certain factors, this Florida felony can be punishable by up to 30 years in prison up to Life. To be convicted of Kidnapping in Florida, the State Attorney has to prove that you forcibly, secretly or by threat confined, abducted or imprisoned someone against their will. In addition, you have to do it with the intent to get a ransom, commit another felony, physically or emotionally hurt someone or to interfere with a governmental function. If accused of kidnapping a child under 13 years of age and abuse that child, sexually batter the child, commit a lewd or lascivious battery on the child, or exploit that child, you could receive life sentence.

Merely being accused of kidnapping can have serious consequences. Contact our Jacksonville Kidnapping Attorney today for a Free Consultation. You can reach us at (904) 365-5200.
