Summary of Kidnapping Crimes

Kidnapping (Penal Code Sections 207-210) is defined as moving another person against their will through force, violence, intimidation or fear. The “moving” can be any distance, across the country, or across the street, or even to the other side of the house. This charge carries severe penalties.

Depending on a defendant’s criminal history, whether a weapon was involved and if someone was hurt, a defendant may face up to life in prison.
