Forcible Confinements Lawyer
Defending Against Forcible Confinement Charges
The act of holding someone in one location against their will through coercion, threats, or physical restraint is referred to as forcible confinement. Just like kidnapping, forcible confinement carries harsh penalties upon conviction.
This offence revolves around limiting another person’s liberty, even in the slightest ways. For example, if you restrict your partner’s path during a heated domestic argument, you may be charged with forcible confinement alongside other domestic violence charges.
If you’re facing forcible confinement charges, enlist the services of a criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible. They’ll help you navigate the justice system, develop a strong defence strategy, and protect your rights. Call Zamani Law for a free, no-obligation consultation.
