Abduction Charges

To prove abduction, the government must prove that you used force, intimidation, or deception to either transport (move), detain, or hide another person without their consent.  Because abduction is defined so broadly, it is possible to be charged with abduction for simply preventing someone from leaving the house during an argument. 

Very few cases that are prosecuted in Virginia involve what people actually think abduction is, i.e. kidnapping someone. 

No actual movement of the person is required to prove the charge.  Because abduction is a charge that is broadly defined, many prosecutors may be willing to negotiate a reduction of this charge.  An experienced attorney can help you achieve an outcome that makes sense with the facts of your case. 

Some examples of events that can lead to a charge of abduction in Virginia:

  • A person accused of holding a persons arm as their significant other tries to get out of a car.
  • Locking a spouse or child in a bathroom.
  • Preventing a person from leaving out the front door of their apartment during an argument by blocking them with their body.
