Under Indiana law, "to confine" means "
to substantially interfere with the liberty of a person." Indiana Code 35-42-3. Section 35-42-3-3 provides that the crime of criminal
confinement occurs when
a person who knowingly or intentionally:
(1) confines another person without the other person's consent; or
(2) removes another person, by fraud, enticement, force, or threat of force, from one (1) place to another;
commits criminal confinement. Criminal confinement is usually a Class D felony.
However, it is a Class C felony if:
a) the person is under the age of 14 (and not the child of the offender)
b) the crime is committed using a vehicle, or
it results in bodily injury to a person other than the confining or removing person
Confinement is a Class B felony if the defendant is armed with a motor vehicle, results in serious bodily injury to someone other than the confining or removing person, or is committed using an aircraft.
