Kidnapping refers to the taking or removing of someone against his or her will, sometimes by means of force, violence, or the threat of violence. Kidnapping charges can also arise from confining, constraining or holding another person against his or her will. Kidnapping is a felony criminal offense that can be tried at both the state and federal level, likely resulting in long prison sentences, probation, large fines, loss of custodial rights, and much more.

Kidnapping has historically been perceived to be a crime committed by strangers. This is no longer the perception. While, of course, kidnappings are committed by strangers against strangers, a greater number of kidnapping cases involve the taking of a person known to the kidnapper, as in the taking of a child by a non-custodial parent.

Kidnapping is very serious, and is not tolerated by state or federal prosecutors. Once you have been arrested on kidnapping charges, you will be interrogated by the prosecution and the law enforcement. If you are convicted, the legal consequences can be devastating. If you are charged with kidnapping, it is vital that you hire an experienced and skilled kidnapping defense attorney right away. Only with the assistance of an exceptionally skilled criminal defense attorney, do you have any chance of overcoming the charges and winning your case. Tony Rollman takes kidnapping cases very seriously, and works tirelessly to prepare a defense case with the ultimate goal to prove his clients’ innocence in the matter.
