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.
