Intentionally or knowingly abducting another person describes the act of
kidnapping under Texas Penal Code Section 20.03. Have you been accused
of kidnapping? Are you currently under investigation by law enforcement
for an offense of this nature? You must move quickly to involve a lawyer
who can aggressively assert your rights under the U.S. Constitution. Delaying
in working with a lawyer or attempting to cooperate with the police may
only lead to unintentional self-incrimination or other negative consequences.
An attorney who is experienced in handling these types of
criminal defense cases can guide you in the right direction.
At The Alband Law Firm, we have the experience to handle complex kidnapping
cases. We represent defendants in the Fort Worth area in the face of even
the most serious and complex
felony cases. Our founding attorney is a former prosecutor, and as such he understands
both sides of the legal system. He can use his diverse knowledge to build
insightful and effective defense strategies that target the particular
weaknesses he is able to identify in the prosecuting attorney's case.
About Kidnapping Charges & Penalties
Kidnapping is a felony of the third degree, punishable by 2 to 10 years
in state prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000. In some circumstances,

99 years in prison. Aggravated kidnapping charges may apply in a case
where a defendant is accused of kidnapping for ransom, kidnapping to use
the victim as a hostage, kidnapping involving sexual abuse or bodily injury
