Understanding Kidnap and False Imprisonment

Kidnap and false imprisonment are serious crimes that involve the unlawful restriction of a person's freedom. While these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, it's important to understand the legal distinctions between them:

  • Kidnap: Involves forcibly taking another person away from a physical location without their consent, often through deception or coercion.

  • False Imprisonment: Occurs when a person unlawfully restricts another person's freedom of movement by confining them to a location against their will.

What to Do If You're Arrested

If you're arrested on charges of kidnap or false imprisonment, it's essential to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Here's what you should keep in mind:

  • Exercise Your Rights: You have the right to remain silent and the right to legal counsel. Refrain from answering any questions until your solicitor is present to advise you.

  • Contact Your Solicitor: Request to speak with your solicitor immediately. Our team is available around the clock to provide advice and representation during police interviews.

  • Stay Calm: Remain calm and cooperative during the interview process. Your solicitor will guide you through the proceedings and ensure that your rights are protected.

Potential Outcomes

After the police interview, you may be released with no further action, released under investigation, detained in custody, or charged with a specific offence. Our team will work diligently to achieve the best possible outcome for your case, presenting mitigating factors to the court and advocating for leniency in sentencing.

Sentence for Kidnap or False Imprisonment

If convicted of kidnap or false imprisonment, the potential penalties can range from 12 months to life imprisonment, depending on the circumstances of the case. Our solicitors will strive to minimise the impact of any sentence by presenting a compelling defence tailored to your individual situation.
