You deserve an aggressive defense from an experienced kidnapping defense attorney.
Have you been accused of kidnapping? This is a serious crime, and even a “simple” kidnapping conviction can result in felony penalties including up to 8 years in state prison. If you are charged with aggravated kidnapping for allegedly taking a child under age 14, making a ransom demand, causing serious injury or death to the victim, or violating other laws related to kidnapping, you will face even more serious penalties including life in prison.
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we understand what is at stake in your case, and because we sincerely care about your rights and your future, we are ready to do everything in our power to prevent a conviction as your kidnapping defense lawyer.
Possible Kidnapping Defenses
In order to secure a conviction for kidnapping, the prosecution must prove that the victim was moved a substantial distance against their will without using force or fear. If we can disprove any of these elements, it’s not a kidnapping. For example, we might be able to present evidence showing that the victim consented to being moved or that the amount they were moved isn’t enough to qualify as kidnapping.
As your kidnapping defense lawyer, we will explore every possible option for your defense, including additional strategies like insufficient evidence, false accusations, and mistaken identity. We have a detailed understanding of the letter of the law, the relevant case law, and the types of forensic evidence frequently used in kidnapping cases, and we can leverage this knowledge to build the best possible defense given the particulars of your case.
