Defining Against a Kidnapping Charge in Oklahoma

If you’ve been charged with kidnapping—even if you believe the incident was a simple misunderstanding between you and your spouse—you need to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Do not take chances when your freedom and your future are at stake.

To defend against a kidnapping charge, you must be able to prove one or more of the following:

  • You did not act unlawfully.
  • You did not act with intent.
  • You did not act against the will of the victim.

Prosecutors will frequently overcharge defendants to scare them into pleading guilty to a lesser crime. While a plea bargain may be the appropriate course of action for your case, you should not agree to anything until you’ve had all options evaluated by a criminal defense attorney. Your attorney will evaluate the evidence against you and determine the strength of the case to determine how to best achieve a favorable outcome.
