Kidnapping Under Michigan Law - (750.349)
Michigan Penal Code (750.349) defines kidnapping as a person knowingly restraining another person with the intent to commit one or more of the following:
- Hold that person for ransom or reward.
- Use that person as a shield or hostage.
- Engage in criminal sexual penetration or criminal sexual contact
- Take that person outside of this state.
- Hold that person in involuntary servitude.
- Engage in child sexually abusive activity
Restricting a person’s movements or confining them in order to deprive them of their liberty is how Michigan defines ‘restraining’ in the context of this law. Restraining a person with the goal of harming them in any of the above mentioned circumstances can result in life imprisonment. It could also lead to heavy fines, up to $50,000, and a slew of other detrimental consequences.
It’s highly recommended that you retain an attorney if you face these charges or accusations. Without an attorney defending your rights and building a case against the charges, the consequences can become much more detrimental.
