A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed federal kidnapping charges and their potential penalties. Unfortunately, the law in this area, like much of the federal penal code, is complicated. Therefore, some Californians may find themselves facing kidnapping allegations without even knowing that they have done anything wrong. For example, a non-custodial parent may take a child across state lines, not knowing that he or she needs permission to do so. In this instance, the non-custodial parent may be facing significant penalties, including prison and the loss of access to his or her child.
While the above example is illustrative, it is not, by any means, the only instance where an individual can be shocked to be arrested on kidnapping charges. Being confronted by the authorities and subjected to a frightening legal system, these individuals may not know where to turn. We hope that they decide to turn to a dedicated law firm with the experience to provide a competent defense. The Law Office of Thomas A Johnson is such a firm.
