Understanding Kidnapping Charges in Ohio
In Ohio, kidnapping is a serious offense that carries severe penalties. A person can be charged with kidnapping if they forcibly, secretly, or deceptively remove another person from their place of residence or business or restrain their liberty for any of the following purposes:
Hold the victim for ransom, as a hostage, or as a shield
Commit a felony
Flee after committing a felony
Engage in human trafficking or sexual activity against the victim's will
Terrorize or inflict serious physical harm on the victim or another person
Interfere with the performance of any government function
The penalties for kidnapping depend on the circumstances of the case and can range from a prison sentence of three to eleven years and substantial fines for a third-degree felony, up to life imprisonment for aggravated kidnapping with serious harm inflicted on the victim.
