Kidnapping Charges

Frequently, kidnapping charges arise out of child custody disputes. In the midst of the dispute, one parent may run off with the child or simply keep the child away from the other parent. The people charged with this crime are often surprised at the severity of the charges they face. They do not recognize what they have done as kidnapping, since it involved their own child. Unfortunately, this is a very serious matter and requires the attention of knowledgeable Missouri kidnapping attorneys.

In addition to providing skilled criminal defense, our law firm also features family law attorneys who prove to be quite helpful when these types of kidnapping and child custody scenarios arise.

Felonious Restraint Charges

Felonious restraint is a crime similar to kidnapping. Like most kidnapping charges, it also typically arises out of domestic disputes. Often in relation to a divorce, a couple may get into heated arguments. One party may want to leave. The other party may block the door or otherwise prevent the other from leaving. That party may then be accused of felonious restraint and, depending on the situation, potentially also domestic violence. These are complex and emotional situations. We are here to help you through this.
