What is Kidnapping?

Kidnapping is the unlawful seizure, transportation, or confinement of a person without their consent. In North Carolina, kidnapping is considered a Class C felony, punishable by up to 204 months in prison. Aggravating factors such as using a deadly weapon, bodily injury, or the victim's age can lead to even more severe penalties.

Types of Kidnapping

Kidnapping can take many forms, each with its circumstances and legal implications. The most common types of kidnapping in North Carolina include:

  • Abduction for ransom or reward
  • Kidnapping for extortion
  • Kidnapping to commit a felony
  • Kidnapping during the commission of a carjacking

Regardless of the type of kidnapping, having a competent lawyer by your side is crucial.

Defenses to Kidnapping Charges

There are several defenses that a skilled kidnapping attorney can use to defend against kidnapping charges. Some of these defenses include:

  • Consent: The charges may be dismissed if the alleged victim consented to the confinement or transportation.
  • Lack of intent: The charges may be reduced or dismissed if the defendant did not intend to commit the kidnapping.
  • False accusations: If the defendant is falsely accused of kidnapping, an experienced attorney can help prove their innocence.
