Abduction vs kidnapping

In Tennessee abduction is not against the Criminal Code. In Tennessee we define it as kidnapping. There are basically four types of kidnapping. One, false imprisonment which is a misdemeanor. Two, kidnapping. Three, aggravated kidnapping. Four, especially aggravated kidnapping.

One thing that we're seeing more now is the district attorney's office are using kidnapping charges as a wedge or a hammer to force a plea bargain agreement, so you then elevate the simple domestic violence case into a case where you're looking at mandatory jail time. If you have any questions about kidnapping, whether kidnapping can apply, what is it, what happens, the penalties, please give us a call. Contact us via the website and then we'll answer your questions.
