Defending Against Forcible Confinement Charges

Many individuals charged with sexual assault or domestic assault find themselves also charged with the crime of forcible confinement. This crime states that it is illegal to force another person to remain in one location through the use of threats, coercion or physical actions.Similar to kidnapping, a conviction for forcible confinement carries serious penalties. You could face up to 10 years in prison. An experienced lawyer, however, can help you build a sophisticated, detailed defence against your charges.Our Toronto forcible confinement lawyers at Neuberger & Partners LLP have experience representing the rights of clients in cases involving forcible confinement. We take a careful look at the circumstances involved in the case and the dynamics of the two parties. We analyze carefully whether the party’s liberty was indeed restricted or if he or she was there willingly. We will pull in experts to help us understand the psychological and objective components involved in the charges. Our lawyers will take all steps necessary to protect your rights.
