What is Kidnapping?

Kidnapping is a grave criminal offense involving unlawful abduction, restraint, or confinement of another person against their will. In Colorado, kidnapping is categorized into two degrees:

First-Degree Kidnapping: This is the more severe form of kidnapping. It occurs when an individual knowingly seizes, carries away, confines, or secretes another person by force, threat, or intimidation, with the intent to:

  • Hold them for ransom or reward.
  • Use them as a shield or hostage.
  • Physically or sexually assault them.
  • Facilitate the commission of a felony.
  • Inflict serious bodily injury or death upon the victim.

Second-Degree Kidnapping: This degree of kidnapping is less severe but still a serious crime. It involves knowingly seizing, carrying away, confining, or secreting another person without their consent and without the intent to commit any other crime or harm the victim. Second-degree kidnapping is frequently charged when the victim is released unharmed.

What are the Penalties for Kidnapping in Colorado?

The penalties for kidnapping in Colorado vary depending on the degree of the offense. Kidnapping is regarded as a felony and can lead to 4 years to life in prison and hefty fines. An individual charged with kidnapping can face a class 1, 2, or 4 felony.

Defenses Against Kidnapping Charges

Some common defenses against kidnapping charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that you did not have the intent to commit a crime or harm the victim is a strong defense against kidnapping charges.
  • Consent: If the alleged victim willingly went with you or consented to be confined, it could be a viable defense.
  • False Accusations: In some cases, individuals may be falsely accused of kidnapping due to misunderstandings or ulterior motives. We can work diligently to uncover any inconsistencies in the accuser's story.
  • Alibi: Providing a credible alibi that proves you were not at the location of the alleged kidnapping when it occurred can be an effective defense.
  • Violation of Constitutional Rights: If your rights had been violated during your arrest or the investigation, evidence obtained may be deemed inadmissible in court.
  • Mistaken Identity: Proving that you were not the perpetrator or were wrongly identified as the kidnapper can be a strong defense.
