Buffalo Criminal Attorney Discusses Defenses Against Unlawful Imprisonment
As a dedicated Buffalo Criminal Attorney, I often speak to clients about defenses they can take when arrested for unlawful imprisonment.
- If you have been charged with unlawful imprisonment in the first or second degree in New York State, a defense may be available to you.
- If, while disciplining a child less than 16 years of age, a person who is a relative of that child is restraining the child for the sole purpose of gaining control of the child, that is considered an affirmative defense in New York State.
- In cases where a relative is merely gaining control of a child, the accused person may be found not guilty or have the charges dismissed.
