New Jersey kidnapping lawyer Adam M. Lustberg releases a new article ( that explains the penalties for a kidnapping conviction in Hackensack, New Jersey. The lawyer mentions that in New Jersey, kidnapping is defined as the act of holding another person as a hostage in exchange for a ransom or a reward. An individual is also guilty of kidnapping if they unlawfully remove another person from their place of residence or business for the purpose of committing a crime, inflicting bodily injury, and permanently depriving a parent or guardian custody of the victim.

“In New Jersey, kidnapping is graded as either a first or second-degree crime. Whether you have been charged with kidnapping a child or an adult, you are facing significant fines and a lengthy prison sentence. Retaining a seasoned and aggressive New Jersey kidnapping attorney is the only way that you are going to be able to overcome these charges completely or minimize the length of your prison sentence,” says the New Jersey kidnapping lawyer.

The lawyer explains that kidnapping can also be when an individual does not let another person leave from where they are, or when an individual is moved to another location for the purpose of torturing them or hurting them. A person interfering with the government by holding a person can also be considered kidnapping.

Attorney Adam M. Lustberg adds that a person can be charged with kidnapping if they are depriving a parent or a guardian of their rights to be with their child. If someone is charged with kidnapping but the victim has been safely released, this will result in a second-degree crime and can result in up to 10 years in prison.

In the article, attorney Lustberg also adds that if the victim is freed by force by someone other than the kidnapper, or if the victim was exchanged for money or goods, this will result in a first-degree crime and will carry a sentence of up to 30 years.

According to the criminal defense attorney, “Some situations merit a mandatory of 25 years in prison without parole, which is why you want to consult a criminal defense attorney to ensure that you have the defense that you need.”

Lastly, attorney Adam emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing charges such as kidnapping. Having an experienced criminal defense lawyer may be able to help the client understand their rights and protect their freedom.
