Criminal charges of false imprisonment or abduction often come along with other types of criminal charges such as domestic violence, battery or assault. You may have been in violation of a restraining order and circumstances escalated to the point of charges of false imprisonment or abduction.
To meet the definition of abduction or false imprisonment, force should have been involved. Sometimes, however, the idea of "force" is stretched to include verbal interactions that sounded like threats. A skilled criminal defense lawyer on your side early on in your case may be able to obtain a favorable outcome on your behalf. Contact Delgado & Romanik if you found yourself in a situation such as one of the following — and now face criminal charges or accusations of criminal conduct:
