Following are some examples of false imprisonment and kidnapping:
- You have an argument with your spouse while driving. She demands that you
pull over and let her out of the car. You continue driving, instead. When
you get home, she calls the police and you end up charged with false imprisonment.
- Your spouse threatens to call the police during an argument. You take away
her cell phone to prevent her from making the call. You can be charged
with false imprisonment.
- You have car trouble and are a couple hours late returning your children
to their mother's home after their parenting time with you. When you
deliver them safely to her doorstep, you learn she has called the police.
You are charged with child kidnapping.

and are charged with kidnapping.

While we defend clients charged with all types of kidnapping, hostage taking,
and child abduction, we most frequently represent clients in kidnapping
and false imprisonment cases related to domestic violence. These cases
can include spouses, children, parents, or anyone you have ever dated.
Penalties for kidnapping cases can be extremely severe. Don't try to
explain the situation to authorities and expect them to see the facts
your way. Contact Blumenthal Law Offices for experienced legal advice.
