Orange County Kidnapping Attorney
If you have criminally or unlawfully removed or taken another person or persons from one place to another against their will or by using force, fear or other similar method, you could be convicted of kidnapping in California. Even if the individual involved in the alleged kidnapping was a member of your own family such as a child, parent or other relative, you could still face criminal charges if you unlawfully take that person from one place to another. For example, if you take your child without the permission of the custodial parent, you could be convicted of kidnapping.
California's "three strikes" law includes kidnapping as a strike offense. That means that if you have a prior criminal record or a previous "strike" on your record, the punishment you receive if convicted will be doubled or you could spend life in prison, depending upon your record.
