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.
