Understanding Unlawful Imprisonment

Unlawful imprisonment can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the unique facts and circumstances involved. Certain aggravating circumstances - including injury to a victim, the use of a weapon, or the use of a firearm - could also result in elevated charges and penalties.

In many cases, charges of kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment are also related to domestic violence issues or charges. When family members are involved, these cases can become increasingly complex, both for the defense and prosecution. Our attorneys are experienced in handling cases involving domestic violence.
