What is Kidnapping?
Whoever takes or entices any minor under sixteen years of age, if a male, or under eighteen years of age, if a female, or any person of unsound mind out of the keeping of the lawful guardian of such minor or person of unsound mind, without the consent of such guardian, is said to kidnap such minor or person from lawful guardianship.
In criminal law, kidnapping is the taking away or transportation of a person against the persons will, usually to hold the person in false imprisonment, a confinement without legal authority.  This may be done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime, or in connection with a child custody dispute.
