In the instance of kidnapping, the criminal offence may be regarded by the court as more severe where a total stranger kidnaps a child or person for the purpose of demanding a ransom from their family or friends. It has also been the case sometimes for kidnapped children or persons to be subjected to all manners of sexual torture, some resulting in the death of the victims. In such instances, the criminal offence of kidnap becomes one of the lesser counts on the indictment while sexual offence, murder or attempted murder charges are also added to the allegations against the defendant.
Whether you are potentially facing one or more counts of charges of abduction, kidnap and any other on an indictment, London’s most prominent criminal defence law network are waiting and happy to hear from you and to go through the minute details of your case with you. Mitigating circumstances can be pleaded on behalf of a deeply troubled parent who feared the concept of hardly, if ever, seeing their child again. Our child kidnap solicitors will examine all the facts that may prove useful and relevant to the case. We will build the strongest defence possible in the circumstances based on the facts we sieve through and are convinced will assist in exhibiting your anxiety as a parent. This only applies in cases where the person accused of child abduction or kidnap is the victim’s ‘other’ parent within the legal meaning.
It should be added that we are however also widely experienced in other abduction and kidnap matters which do not necessarily involve children. It is very often the case that abduction and kidnap allegations are associated with other related charges which potentially increase the gravity of the offence.
