A friend and the mother of his child were living together. They recently decided to split up, like in the last couple days. She came over today and took their child and refuses to tell him where she took the baby. This can be seen through their text messages. He told her this is kidnapping and he would call cops. She said go ahead that she wont get into trouble. What are his options? Can he have her arrested for kidnapping?
Yes. The separation has literally just taken place, in the last day or two.
I just read this law. Can you please give me your resource for you answer. According to C.R.S. 18-3-302 a person commits second degree kidnapping when s/he seizes and carries any person from one place to another, without his consent and without lawful authority; or s/he takes away any child below 18 years with intent to keep or conceal the child from his or her parent or guardian or with intent to sell, trade, or barter such child for consideration. - See more at: http://kidnapping.uslegal.com/state-kidnapping-abduction-laws/colorado-kidnappingabduction-laws/#sthash.cKbXEFjy.dpuf
