Milwaukee Kidnapping Defense Attorney
Criminal Lawyer Serving the Greater Milwaukee Area
Kidnapping is a serious criminal offense which entails taking another person and holding them in unlawful confinement against their will. In instances where the child goes willingly from the home, then the crime would be referred to as "child abduction" rather than kidnapping. Charges of this nature carry serious criminal penalties and lasting consequences if you were to be convicted. If you have been arrested for abducting another person in the state of Wisconsin, then you will need the assistance of a Milwaukee criminal defense lawyer from my firm.
Kidnapping Penalties in Wisconsin
In the state of Wisconsin, kidnapping is considered to be a felony offense. The penalties for this crime may vary depending on the circumstances of the offense, but ultimately you could be facing a Class B felony. This type of felony crime is punishable for up to 60 years in prison. If there is a demand for the transfer of property in exchange for the release of the kidnapping victim, you could also be faced with a fine of up to $100,000.
There are several different motives behind the kidnapping, but in most cases, it is for the purpose of ransom or political maneuvering. This type of kidnapping is rarer and it is considered to be a federal crime with a terrorism component. The second and more common form of kidnapping occurs when a non-custodial parent takes their child outside state lines and disobeys the terms of their court-ordered child custody arrangement.
