Protecting Children - When and From What?

  • Frank Bates

Abstract

On 18 April 1990, the case of Iowa v Siemer was decided by the Supreme Court of Iowa in the United States. This case raises many of the issues which this paper seeks to address. Siemer and his de facto spouse were charged with the kidnapping of the wife's seven year old son Tracey. In the State of Iowa, the crime of kidnapping, as it applied in the instant case, involved three elements: first, confinement of the victim; second, that such confinement be without authority and consent and, third, that it be with the intent to inflict serious injury or secretly to confine.
