Dallas, GA Kidnapping Lawyer
Federal Kidnapping Charges, Penalties & Conviction
Kidnapping is a federal crime because the commission of this crime involves the abduction of a person, either for ransom or reward money. There are a wide variety of factors that may play a role in determining whether a federal charge can be applied. Some of the most common violations include transporting the victim across state lines, using the mail in the commission of the crime or a kidnapping that occurs within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States to name just a few.
Kidnapping charges are met with the full force of the federal government's justice departments and other law enforcement agencies that can be of use. The keen insight of an experienced Dallas, GA criminal defense lawyer is critical to the success of any federal kidnapping defense.
The penalty for kidnapping is extremely harsh with convictions imposing open-ended prison terms including life sentences. If the victim is killed as the result of a murder or manslaughter, then the death penalty becomes a possibility. Kidnapping may also be charged alongside other crimes such as assault, robbery, or sex crimes likerape and sexual battery.
The potential for multiple long-term sentences is high in these cases, given the fact that kidnapping penalties themselves are so harsh. These are all reasons to seek the most efficient, organized and skilled attorney available, because failing to do so may leave your future in the hands of a less capable, less proficient representative who cannot deliver your charges.
