Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your legal question today and I'm sorry to hear that your liberty was illegally restricted. There are both criminal and civil penalties for unlawful interference with your personal liberty and restriction of the same.

For example the following statute states:

"509.020 Unlawful imprisonment in the first degree. (1) A person is guilty of unlawful imprisonment in the first degree when he knowingly and unlawfully restrains another person under circumstances which expose that person to a risk of serious physical injury. (2) Unlawful imprisonment in the first degree is a Class D felony. "

In addition the civil liability statute is the following:

"434.715 Criminal or civil liability prohibited for false arrest or false imprisonment where prima facie evidence of fraud exists and proper notice is given. In the event of the existence of prima facie evidence of fraudulent intent as defined in KRS 434.695 and proper notice given as required, any person, firm or corporation causing the arrest of a person so using a credit or debit card shall not be criminally or civilly liable for false arrest or false imprisonment. "

In relation to the criminal action you need to file a local police report.

In relation to the civil action you can file in the general trial court for damages.
