Kidnapping Providing Innovative Solutions & Obtaining Optimal Results

What is Kidnapping?

Next to murder, kidnapping is among the most serious crimes under New Jersey criminal law. Kidnapping occurs when a person removes or confines another to:

  • Hold as a hostage
  • Facilitate the commission of another crime
  • Terrorize
  • Interfere with government function
  • Permanently deprive a parent or legal guardian of custody over the victim

Kidnapping Penalties

Kidnapping carries a sentence of 15 to 30 years in prison. If, however, the victim is under the age of 16 and suffers a sexual assault during the kidnapping or is delivered to another for pecuniary gain, it carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison.
