Duke lacrosse alleged rape case gets more interesting
If I recall correctly, kidnapping charges are far more severe than rape or sexual assault. Or, should I say, the penality for it is more severe. I would be surprise that it's just "thrown in". Humf. This whole case is puzzling to me. Guess we'll just have to wait-n-see.?.

The case has raised racial tensions and heightened the long-standing town-vs.-gown antagonism between Duke students and middle-class, racially mixed Durham.


I, frankly, am tired of the media bringing this up. I lived in Durham for 7 years. I never noticed the tensions. Maybe it was just me. I lived closer to North Carolina Central than I did Duke, but the neighborhoods around NCCU were safer than Duke. Trust me on that one.

Here are some legal definitions that helps explain the charge of kidnapping,
kidnapping - the taking of a person against his/her will (or from the control of a parent or guardian) from one place to another under circumstances in which the person so taken does not have freedom of movement, will, or decision through violence, force, threat or intimidation. Although it is not necessary that the purpose be criminal (since all kidnapping is a criminal felony) the capture usually involves some related criminal act such as holding the person for ransom, sexual and/or sadistic abuse, or rape. It includes taking due to irresistible impulse and a parent taking and hiding a child in violation of court order. An included crime is false imprisonment. Any harm to the victim coupled with kidnapping can raise the degree of felony for the injury and can result in a capital (death penalty) offense in some states, even though the victim survives. Originally it meant the stealing of children, since "kid" is child in Scandinavian languages, but now applies to adults as well.

False imprisonment: Intentionally restraining another person without having the legal right to do so. It's not necessary that physical force be used; threats or a show of apparent authority are sufficient. False imprisonment is a misdemeanor and a tort (a civil wrong). If the perpetrator confines the victim for a substantial period of time (or moves him a significant distance) in order to commit a felony, the false imprisonment may become a kidnapping. People who are arrested and get the charges dropped, or are later acquitted, often think that they can sue the arresting officer for false imprisonment (also known as false arrest). These lawsuits rarely succeed: As long as the officer had probable cause to arrest the person, the officer will not be liable for a false arrest, even if it turns out later that the information the officer relied upon was incorrect.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Rollie - I dont' think she is a victim either - I don't buy the story at all...but because they have to treat her as such - that is why they aren't disclosing her name.

I think she is a liar and is looking for money in this deal. Or,...maybe they didn't tip or something and she got pissed.

Either way - sounds bogus to me.

I think that the kidnapping charge is total b.s. If you read the definition, she was there under her own will (if I am right). Now, the only thing is, could they acctually call it kidnapping if she was in the building under her own will and was forced into another room? I for one think the entire case a way to get MORE money from the guys, b/c her line of work doesn't pay all that well.

You can think it is BS, but what they are alledging he did fits the legal definition of kidnapping. Most people think of kidnapping only in the way it is protrayed on television, but there are many other forms of kipnapping such as this case is showing. Think of it this way. Your go to work on your own free will, what if someone dragged you into the bathroom or any other place in your office building and would not let you leave. What would you call it?

kidnapping - the taking of a person against his/her will from one place to another under circumstances in which the person so taken does not have freedom of movement, will, or decision through violence, force, threat or intimidation.
