Did you know that if you are charged with a sex crime, across the state of Kansas, you may also be charged with kidnapping & false imprisonment? That may seem strange if your alleged victim isn't suggesting that they were snatched from somewhere and forced to stay there. However, under Johnson County, Kansas criminal law, it is very possible. Why? Because, particularly in instances of rape, you are accused of "taking or confining" your alleged victim, "by force, threat or deception, with the intent to hold such person" to "inflict bodily injury or to terrorize". False imprisonment is where you "hold or restrain" your alleged victim "without proper authority" intending to "interfere with their liberty". This crime can be escalated to an aggravated offense when you actually did "inflict bodily harm". As you can see anytime you are charged with a sex crime in Kansas you may be charged with these too.
The potential penalties for kidnapping & false imprisonment can be as high as 20 to 54 years in prison. If convicted, this is on top of whatever sex crime you were charged with.
These charges are very serious and typically aggressively prosecuted. We know that you are innocent and want to help you prove it. Call Attorney T. Morton NOW 913-602-7288 for your free consultation. Payment plans are available.
