Criminal Practice – Kidnapping – Removal – Single Room – Insufficient Showing – Jury Instructions (access required)

State v. Boyd According to the victim’s own testimony, the entirety of her encounter with defendant occurred within the confines of her living room. There was evidence that defendant confined and restrained the victim, but there was no evidence that he “removed” her. The trial court should not have given the jury the alternative instruction that defendant could be convicted of kidnapping if he “removed” the victim “from one place to another.”
