Does Texas Consider Relocation Kidnapping?
When a person is taken against their will from one location to another, the crime is called kidnapping and can be charged on either a state or federal level. When you are prosecuted for a crime, it is important to have a representative on your side who can help you fully understand your rights and effectively tell your side of the story.
We may be able to help you prove that:
- The alleged victim of kidnapping gave their consent to be transported
- You did not know you were committing a crime
- The alleged victim is your relative
- You were not in your right state of mind when the alleged crime occurred
It is important to remember that while you may have been charged with a crime, it does not mean you are a criminal. You have rights, and they include being presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
