Michigan law regarding kidnapping outlines serious penalties for a conviction. You need a skilled legal defense team to defend you against any accusations by law enforcement or formal charges of kidnapping.

Our experienced legal counsel at Grewal Law PLLC is ready to be by your side throughout your entire case. A kidnapping charge is brought when you have been accused of restricting a person’s movements by attempting to confine the person without legal authority. Do not face these charges without having the best possible defense.

Michigan Law Regarding Kidnapping

Kidnapping is defined as knowingly restraining another person with the intent of attempting to do at least one of the following:

  • Holding the person for ransom or reward
  • Using the person as a shield or hostage
  • Engaging in criminal sexual penetration or criminal sexual conduct as prohibited by state law
  • Take the person outside of the state
  • Hold the person in involuntary servitude
  • Engage in child sexually abusive activity

If you are convicted of kidnapping in Michigan, you could potentially spend the rest of your life in prison. In addition, you could be forced to pay up to $50,000 in fines. You may also face other charges for other crimes in connection with the kidnapping. Contact our Michigan kidnapping defense lawyers the second you are under investigation by law enforcement. We will thoroughly investigate any allegations brought against you.

Child Kidnapping in Michigan

The conviction of the crime can include life imprisonment, so you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to handle your case.

As a natural or adopted parent of a child, you can also be charged with a crime if you detain or conceal him or her from his or her other parent or guardian who has legal custody. The felony conviction will result in up to one year and one day in jail along with fines up to $2,000 or both.
