Johnson County Attorney For Criminal Restraint Charges
What Is Criminal Restraint?
Someone may be charged with criminal restraint when he or she restricts or prevents the free movement of another person. Even something as simple as standing in front of a door and preventing someone from leaving can be considered criminal restraint.
While criminal restraint charges may seem flimsy, prosecutors often use them to strengthen weak cases. Furthermore, the courts tend to severely punish individuals found guilty of criminal restraint. As such, a skilled lawyer familiar with these types of cases is your best chance at obtaining a good outcome.
