KIDNAPPING § 13-1304

A person commits kidnapping by knowingly restraining another person with the intent to:

Hold the victim for ransom, as a shield, or hostage; or
Hold the victim for involuntary servitude; or
Inflict death, physical injury or a sexual offense on the victim; or
Otherwise aid in the commission of a felony; or
Place the victim or a third person in reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury; or
Interfere with the performance of a government or political function; or
Seize or exercise control over any airplane, train, bus, ship or other vehicle.
Kidnapping is a Class 2 Felony but can be more serious if the victim is under fifteen (15) years of age or less serious, if for example, the victim is released without physical injury in a safe place before arrest and before accomplishing any of the above mentioned things.
