Kidnapping Penalties in Pennsylvania
Kidnapping is defined as taking someone or a group of people against their will from one place to another, and then confining them in isolation with the intention of ransom or reward, facilitate or flight from a felony, inflict injury on them, and/or interfere with the performance of government or political officials. This crime is a first degree felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a fine of up to $25,000. However, if the kidnapping results in personal injury or actual bodily harm to the victim, the court may order the defendant to make full restitution to the victim.
