In many Domestic Violence cases, a kidnapping or similar charge can result when someone is forced to stay and talk when the other party wants to leave.
One should never force another to stay, for any reason, by blocking an exit or keeping someone’s keys or cellular phone.
Kidnapping is defined by penal code:
207. (a) Every person who forcibly, or by any other means of
instilling fear, steals or takes, or holds, detains, or arrests any
person in this state, and carries the person into another country,
state, or county, or into another part of the same county, is guilty
236. False imprisonment is the unlawful violation of the personal
liberty of another.
