A: The outcome depends on the facts of the case which should not be spelled out here. You should contact an experienced attorney to get their opinion. I have been involved in case like this where no one would testify consistently against the accused and therefore the case had to be dropped

A: In short, very serious crime and possibly a life sentence. The related question is if this man held these women against their will, they may have a civil case against the commercial establishment, such as a motel, if thats where they were held by their kidnapper. The victims should discuss their cases in private with counsel here in Florida.
