A person is guilty of kidnapping if he or she knowingly confines another individual against their will and moves that person by use of force or threat of force from one place to another. Kidnapping is a Class 2 felony, punishable by a prison sentence between three and seven years, as well as a fine of up to $25,000.
However, if you are charged with an aggravated kidnapping, the offense is considered a Class X felony. A Class X felony is punishable by a prison sentence between six and 30 years. Depending on the gravity of the crime, a person guilty of aggravated kidnapping can serve an additional 15-25 years imprisonment.
Aggravated kidnapping factors include the following:
- Intention of holding the victim for ransom
- Victim was under 13 years of age
- Victim was severely disabled
- Identification was concealed while the crime was committed
- Kidnapping occurred while armed with dangerous weapon
- Victim suffered serious bodily harm
