Section 707-720 Kidnapping

Not only is kidnapping an offense that can be easily committed, especially against someone that we know or live with, but a simple mistake or lapse in judgment can incur kidnapping charges, a Class A felony offense under Section 707-720.

Under §707-720, a person commits the offense of kidnapping when he or she intentionally restrains another individual with the intent to:

  • Hold the victim for ransom or reward;
  • Use the victim as a shield or hostage;
  • Facilitate the commission of a felony or flight thereafter;
  • Inflict bodily injury upon that person;
  • Subject that person to a sexual offense;
  • Terrorize that person or a third person;
  • Unlawfully obtain the labor or services of that person, regardless if it was related to the collection of a debt.

Kidnapping in Hawaii is a Class A felony offense, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

In extreme cases, an alleged offender may kidnap a person and hold him or her hostage for ransom or reward, but in many cases a kidnapping charge arises after a spouse, or family member accuses their loved one of restraining them in an effort to inflict bodily injury, spousal rape, or otherwise terrorize the alleged victim.

As you can only imagine, these "he said she said" cases can have unpredictable outcomes, especially when they go before a jury. Even if you feel as if you did nothing wrong, in the face of Class A felony charges, you cannot afford to forgo a strong defense.
