Kidnapping During Carjacking
March 20th, 2014


People v. Ortiz (2012) 208 Cal. App. 4th 1354,, upheld CC 1204 which deals with kidnapping during a carjacking. The Court of Appeal rejected the defendants’ arguments that the court should have instructed that the offense of kidnapping during a carjacking requires that the purpose of the kidnapping was to facilitate a carjacking and, in addition, that the offense is not committed if the carjacking is merely incidental to the kidnapping. (Id. at 1367-70.)
