What is Unlawful Imprisonment?
Unlawful imprisonment is when one person illegally restrains another person physically, verbally or by using trickery or deceit. Restraining someone could take the form of not allowing someone to leave their home, office or even their vehicle. Unlawful imprisonment is included in the crime of kidnapping, but it is a lesser crime because the prosecution is not required to prove that the person charged intended to do anything but restrain the victim. Committing this type of a crime is a serious offense and could be considered a felony. If the victim is released voluntarily by the person committing the crime without any injury to the victim and in a safe location, the crime becomes a misdemeanor.
