The Law on False Imprisonment

Idaho law defines false imprisonment as the unlawful violation of the personal liberty of another. It happens when someone seizes, confines or intends to cause harm by keeping someone against their will. This crime is punishable by a fine of up to $5000 or up to one year in jail.

It is not uncommon for people to face charges of false imprisonment after what could be viewed as a minor domestic dispute.
