False Imprisonment Defense Attorney In Boise

Arrested For Kidnapping?

False imprisonment - often referred to as kidnapping - is a serious crime in Idaho. The police and prosecutors often take aggressive action to make sure that people facing these charges are convicted. These charges are serious, but they are often trumped-up.

In our experience, many false imprisonment charges are exaggerated or the result of a simple police misunderstanding. Many who have been accused of false imprisonment are shocked and bewildered to find themselves the recipients of such charges.

Idaho Laws on False Imprisonment

Idaho law defines false imprisonment as the unlawful violation of the personal liberty of another. These charges are very serious and occur when someone seizes, confines or intends to cause harm by keeping someone against their will.

Conviction for a false imprisonment charge is punishable by a fine of up to $5000 or up to a year in jail. In our experience, however, these cases are often misconstrued. It is not uncommon for people to face charges of false imprisonment after what could be viewed as a minor domestic dispute.
