Riverside & Inland Empire Kidnapping Charges

Defense Against Kidnapping in Riverside

According to California Penal Code §207, §208, §209, and §209.5, the criminal act of kidnapping involves a number of different actions. If you move another person a substantial distance without that person's consent through the use of force or fear, then you are guilty of the crime of kidnapping. Force or fear involves inflicting physical force upon the victim or the threat of imminent bodily injury. If you are charged with simple kidnapping, then you will face felony charges; and if convicted, you could face penalties of up to eight years in California state prison. For aggravated kidnapping, you will also face felony penalties, which can include five years to life imprisonment depending on the circumstances of your case.

Aggravated kidnapping is a more serious offense than simple kidnapping.

You could also be charged with aggravated kidnapping for moving another individual during the commission of a carjacking offense.
