FALSE IMPRISONMENT

False imprisonment can be a serious charge, requiring the services of an esteemed Denver defense attorney.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with false imprisonment if the individual confines or detains another without the other’s consent.

False imprisonment is a class 2 misdemeanor, but it can be a class 5 felony if the individual uses force or threat of force to confine or detain the other person, and the other person is detained for twelve hours or longer.

If you or someone you know is being charged with false imprisonment, it is important that you talk to a Denver defense lawyer immediately. Contact a trial tested, result oriented Colorado criminal attorney at Newell & Decker today to discuss the case.
