The Possible Sentences for a Kidnapping Conviction
There are a wide range of potential penalties if convicted on kidnapping charges. In cases where a parent kidnaps a child who is younger than 16 years of age, that parent could be looking at 15 years in prison. In nonparental kidnapping cases, a judge may sentence a defendant to 2 years in jail with a $1,000 fine or send them to prison for up to 10 years.
If, however, the kidnapping was for a ransom or extortion, then it's possible to get a sentence of life in prison. If such a kidnapping was an armed kidnapping, then the minimum sentence is 20 years in prison. If a charge of sexual assault is included in the armed kidnapping charge, then the minimum sentence is 25 years' prison.
