Illegal Restraint/Criminal Confinement
Criminal confinement or illegal restraint involves confining or moving someone against his or her will. The severity of the charges varies depending on various factors:
- Use of force: Criminal confinement can be done through force or threats. If the threats are of a violent nature, or if actual force was used, it increases the severity of the charges.
- Confinement of a child: If the confinement was against a child, the crime is more serious.
Domestic violence: If the confinement was committed against a family member or someone with whom the alleged perpetrator had a close personal relationship, it can change the nature of the charges.
In addition to defending against the criminal charges, we represent clients regarding the no-contact orders that often accompany criminal confinement charges, especially in domestic violence cases. Whenever possible, we help clients fight no-contact orders so they can still see their families and children.
