    Default Statute of Limitations on Kidnapping?

    I am not sure exactly what state to go to about this. I don't even know how to go about doing this.

    I know someone who kidnapped kids from other states and hurt them in front of me when I was little. Right now this person lives in Nevada, but he drove to other states like Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and all the surrounding states to get them. I have no physical proof other than I could probably identify the kids. He videotaped it so if his house, work, car/truck and computer were searched unexpectedly some solid evidence might be found.

    Who do I contact about this? How do I get this sicko put away?

    Any info on law & kidnapping/child abuse/pedo porn would help me.

    Thanks

    The scenario you described would be a federal crime so you would contact the FBI. There is no statue of limitation on federal capital offenses.

    Interstate Kidnapping without murder is not a capital offense though!!

    The U.S. Supreme Court eliminated the death penalty for kidnapping, (kidnapping 18 U.S.C. 1201) but it's still a capital crime.

    I am thinking I will probably have to go to the FBI either way. When it happened we drove in a big diesel truck followed by a little car on a highway in the desert. Then after a long drive we parked the truck and got into the smaller car that was following us and drove off the road into the desert for a while. They set up a plastic tent and filmed us in there. Sometimes we would have a bonfire, and those times the kid did not leave with us. I always wondered where the they went. I hoped and assumed they ran away. Now that I am older, I'm stricken sick by this.

    He is a real creep.

    Do any of you know about the laws and the FBI? Would they search his house or investigate him secretly before they made an arrest? I just don't want to end up missing, so I want to be very careful about this.

    I have to respectfully disagree. Unless death is a possible punishment, the crime is not a capital one.

    Yes, you appear to be correct. You may enjoy reading about the case that confused me. James Ford Seale the KKK thug who, in 1964, kidnapped two black civil rights workers. The feds brought him to trial by using kidnapping as a capital crime, but the decision was overturned on appeal.

    I understand!!

    As a matter of fact, this year, the court struck the death penalty for child rape. Years ago the court ruled that the death penalty for the rape of an adult was unconstitutional, as was the question presented, so on the heels of that, some states passed child rape death penalty statutes, which are now UNconstitutional under the 8th AM.

    So this leaves only 2 capital federal crimes, Murder and it's offshoots, and Article 3 Treason.
