My question involves criminal law for the state of Missouri. A man in our church has accused the school ( Christian School associated with the church of kidnapping. As of yet he has not made formal charges against us. I don't know if he will, or not. Here's what happened.
Our basketball team practices at the local elementary school. The school called to say that we could not used the gym that particular day. The coach decided to used the gym that we play our games in. This gym is about ten miles away, and outside the city limits. This man charges that taking his child (14) out of the city without his consent is criminal kidnapping. Is he correct?
