Kidnapping can be defined as the use of force or fear to take a person and move them against his/her will. This crime is considered a felony offence and you will face jail time if you are convicted, as well as counseling, payment of restitution, substantial fines, and some form of parole or probation. Common types of kidnapping include: child, aggravated, and parental kidnapping. It is also worth noting that if the victim was injured in the process, you could be looking at additional charges. The severity of your punishment is also dependent on the age of the child.

Often times these cases depend on a large variety of factors, and require an attorney who has experience in dealing with these types of cases.
