Criminal Defense Attorney
Without hearing the full story and reviewing whatever information the DA may be willing to provide to the defense or the court order the DA to provide, it's not really possible to say if there is a less serious offense involved in the situation.
Neither aggravated robbery nor kidnapping can be done accidentally or without knowing without the defendant knowing that they are taking actions that later become the basis of the prosecution.
So, what you really badly need to do is to sit down with a criminal defense lawyer who is experienced handling serious felony cases and discuss all the details. That's where you start. This is not a do in yourself defense project.
