Sheriff’s Office Investigates Armed Robbery in Carpinteria

Moving an employee can be legally construed as kidnapping. ""Kidnapping" is moving a victim a substantial distance, using force or fear to do so. You violate California's kidnapping laws, found under Penal Code 207, 208, 209 and 209.5 PC, when you. move another person. a substantial distance. without that person's consent." I googled this: "california penal code definition kidnapping"
