LAW OFFICE OF WAYNE I. NOVAK

Defending your rights to the fullest.

Kidnapping
Kidnapping is generally a Class 2 Felony that can be upgraded depending on the circumstances.  Generally speaking it involves the taking of another by force or threat of force from one place to another.  However, it can also include secretly confining one against their will or enticing one to go from one place to another in order to secretly confine them.  Please see 720 ILCS 5/10-1 et al for more details on what constitutes kidnapping and aggravated kidnapping as well as related offenses.

Experience Matters
I have vast experience in the area of criminal defense.  Whether I am defending a misdemeanor violation or a serious felony offense, I will do everything possible to achieve the best possible result for my client.  The ultimate goal in every case I take on is to keep the charge of my client's permanent record if at all possible.  The sooner you contact me, the sooner I can preserve evidence that is routinely destroyed by most police departments within the first 30 days (booking room video, police dispatch recordings and any other audio or video recordings that may have been made routinely are destroyed after 30 days), which could ultimately impact whether you win or lose your case.  I will take a critical look at police conduct to make sure none of your constitutional rights were violated, and if they were, I will fight to get your case dismissed before a trial would even occur.
