Kidnapping Defense Attorney Serving Johnson County

Kidnapping in Kansas Is defined as a taking or confining of a person accomplished by force, threat or deception and does not depend upon any distance the person is taken or any period of time. Kidnapping is a felony and you are entitled to and should have a lawyer present during any questioning by law enforcement agents. As a suspect you do not have to answer any questions put to you by law enforcement personnel. Prosecutors and police officers take a serious view of kidnapping and will not simply accept your word that you are innocent. The penalties will be severe if you are convicted.

An experienced kidnapping lawyer will take action quickly to investigate the facts in a case and interview witnesses to unearth evidence which police investigators may have overlooked to help a client build a compelling defense. Do not try to deal with any felony charge without representation by a skillful criminal defense lawyer who is determined to succeed. Call John E. Harvell, PA immediately for a consultation.
