Facing Kidnapping Charges In Phoenix?

Defense Attorney For Kidnapping Charges In Phoenix


Kidnapping is a serious felony in Arizona, one which often results in substantial prison time for the defendant. The offense of kidnapping has two basic elements, i.e.


  1. Knowingly restraining a person; and
  2. With specific intention described in A.R.S §13-1304.  


For kidnapping, restraining someone is enough and moving the victim is not necessary. Sometimes, people may end up committing the offense without realizing it. But if you or your loved one have been charged with kidnapping, you need to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to avoid serious penalties. You will require a robust defense strategy tailormade for your case.   


What Constitutes Kidnapping?


Kidnapping is the act of unlawfully restraining a person against his/her will. The unlawful confinement may be done with the intent of a number of reasons, such as ransom, murder, or sexual assault.


In Arizona, the A.R.S §13-1304 defines kidnapping as the action knowingly restraining another person with the intent to:


a) Hold the victim for ransom, as a shield or hostage; or

b) Hold the victim for involuntary servitude; or

c) Inflict death, physical injury or a sexual offense; or

d) Create reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury; or

e) Interfere with governmental or political function; or

f) Seize control over any vehicle.


Prescribed Penalties For Kidnapping


Kidnapping is a serious offense and is charged as a felony in the State of Arizona. Depending on the circumstances of the case, the charges may range from Class 2 to Class 4 felony.

A defendant is charged with a Class 4 felony if he releases the victim in a safe place without any physical injury before getting arrested. However, if the victim is released after negotiations with the State, then it is a Class 3 felony. And in cases, where the victim is not resealed voluntarily or the victim is under fifteen years of age, the perpetrator will be charged with a Class 2 felony.

The punishments for Kidnapping significantly vary from case to case. There are certain aggravating factors, such as the weapon used or previous convictions, which increase the punishment.
