Accused of Kidnapping in Illinois?
You Need a Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer on Your Side
Sometimes considered a violent crime, kidnapping charges may incur some of the harshest penalties in the legal system.

Understand Your Charges and Challenge Them
The crime of kidnapping can be more complicated than it seems on the surface, and you may need one of our Chicago criminal defense lawyers to help you make sense of your charges. Aspects of the crime that can impact your potential conviction include:
- Whether or not the victim was physically restrained
- How far the victim was moved
- Other crimes associated with the arrest, such as assault or sexual abuse
- Verbal threats or evidence of premeditation
It is important to note that if you are charged with kidnapping that involved crossing state lines, you could be facing a serious federal offense. However,
being charged with a federal crime does not necessarily remove your state crime violations. Rather, you are likely to be charged with both, escalating
any penalizing sentences to an even higher level.
