In the eyes of the law, taking a person against his or her will, and holding them hostage can be considered kidnapping or unlawful confinement.  Kidnapping has an element of moving the victim from place to place. These charges are taken extremely seriously by the prosecution, whom fight hard to have an accused incarcerated for a significant period of time. The prosecution examines these cases in extreme detail, and it is important that you retain the services of a competent and experienced defence lawyer to defend your case with the same vigour.

My experience working as a Crown prosecutor taught me how to identify weaknesses in Crown cases.
