Police Brutality in New Jersey
If an individual inhibits or prevents another’s freedom of movement without their consent for any amount of time, he or she has falsely imprisoned that person. This imprisonment may include a physical element to prevent escape, such as being bound with rope, as well as verbal threats of harm to the victim. There are several key factors that contribute to the claim of false imprisonment. First, the confinement must be non-consensual on the victim’s part. Second, the confinement must be intentional on the part of the perpetrator. Third, the victim has to have knowledge that he or she is indeed imprisoned. Last, there can be no available means of escape known to the victim.
