Defending Clients Throughout Texas and Nationwide

At Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C., the legal team aggressively pursues strategies to defend their clients in the face of serious federal charges such as kidnapping. If you or someone you love has been charged with federal kidnapping anywhere in Texas or the United States, now is the time to pick up the phone and call the legal team at their federal criminal defense law firm.

In criminal law, kidnapping refers to the taking away or transportation of someone against their will, and usually holding that person in false imprisonment or confining them without lawful authority to do so. Kidnapping can involve forcing someone into a vehicle and taking them to another location, or locking them in a room where they can't escape. The penalties you face for the crime of kidnapping will depend on the degree of the alleged offense as well as other factors.

Penalties for Kidnapping

Under Texas Penal Code § 20.04, a person commits aggravated kidnapping (a felony in the first degree) when they abduct someone with the intention of holding them for ransom, or using them as a human shield or hostage, or to facilitate the commission of a felony, or to inflict bodily injury or to abuse them sexually, or to interfere with a political function.

Under §12.32 of the Texas Penal Code, a first degree felony is punishable by a maximum of life imprisonment and a maximum $10,000 fine. A second degree felony is punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine, and a third degree felony is punishable by 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine not to exceed $10,000.

High-Quality Kidnapping Defense in Houston

A kidnapping defense lawyer from their office can provide you with the information you need to challenge your kidnapping charges. In some cases, a child's birth parent can be accused and federally charged with kidnapping. For example, you are the non-custodial parent of your child and it is your weekend to have visitation rights with your child. On your way back to the custodial parent's house, your car breaks down and you are stranded without your cell phone. The custodial parent becomes worried and reports the child missing, and immediately names you as the prime suspect.

In cases such as these, where a minor mistake leads to a kidnapping charge, it is vitally important to have your legal representation close at hand. Without a seasoned federal criminal defense attorney, you risk facing the harsh ramifications associated with a federal offense.
