Defense attorneys for charges involving kidnapping or abduction
In Virginia, kidnapping occurs when one uses force or the threat of force to restrain the movement of another. It does not require that you actually take the person away to another location and demand a ransom; simply keeping someone where they are is sufficient for a kidnapping conviction. Kidnapping is generally treated as a felony in our state and carries severe sentencing. If the accused is alleged to have used a firearm while committing a crime of illegally detaining another then the penalties will escalate. In short, if you are charged with kidnapping or abduction then you need legal representation immediately.
