What Is Kidnapping?

Colorado defines the crime of first-degree kidnapping under CRS 18-3-301 as committing any of the following acts with the intent to force the victim or another to give up anything of value:

  • Forcibly seizes or carries another person from one place to another
  • Entices or persuades another person to go from one place to another
  • Imprisons or forcibly secretes another person

This crime is classified as a class 2 felony if the alleged victim is unharmed. This offense carries penalties of 8 to 24 years in prison and a fine up to $1,000,000. If the alleged victim suffers bodily injury, it is considered a class 1 felony. Class 1 felonies are the most serious felonies in Colorado and can result in life imprisonment. 

Possible Defenses To Kidnapping Charges

A highly experienced criminal defense attorney can listen to your story and build a defense based on the specifics of your case. Some common defenses to these types of charges include:

  • Mistaken identity
  • Mistake of fact or law
