Kidnapping Charges in California

Under California Penal Codes 207 through 209.5, you may be charged with kidnapping if you move another person without their consent by use of force or fear or a substantial distance without their consent or knowledge. Kidnapping is a very serious crime and a conviction could have you facing multiple charges including domestic violence charges and violent crime charges.

The act of kidnapping is almost always treated as a felony and it is vitally important that you work with an aggressive attorney who is not afraid to strongly defend you against an accusation of kidnapping. When you work with Tyler & Wilson, LLP, the firm's dedicated and highly experienced Los Angeles domestic violence defense lawyer can ensure that your rights are protected.

Defenses for Kidnapping Charges

There are multiple defenses that may be used when an allegation of kidnapping is made, including that the victim consented to the move in the first place. Often times, parents are charged with kidnapping children, when in fact an ex-spouse or parent to your child may be trying to gain an upper hand in a divorce or custody proceeding. Without sufficient evidence to prove your guilt, you may be able to have charges reduced or be dismissed.

By working with Attorney Khachatourians, you can rest assured that your legal needs will be met by a highly experienced and resourceful defense attorney. At Tyler & Wilson, LLP, the team understands your needs to ensure that you receive a positive outcome for your case and every action will be taken to help you acquire it.
