Call 918-582-6422 for help finding a criminal defense lawyer in Boston, Massachusetts for a kidnapping charge.

Description: Boston, MA - The United States of America charged Julian Field with kidnapping.

A Bedford man pleaded guilty in federal court in Boston in connection with a kidnapping that began in Concord, Mass., and ended in Connecticut.

Julian Field, 24, pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping. In February 2019, Field was charged and arrested in Key West, Fla.

On the evening of Feb. 3, 2019, Field broke into the home of a Concord resident and forced the victim to drive him to a train station in Connecticut, first stopping in Springfield, Mass., to attempt to procure illegal drugs. Field ultimately allowed the victim to leave and authorities subsequently tracked Field to Florida, where he was arrested.

The charge of kidnapping provides for a sentence of up to life in prison, up to five years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Concord Police Chief Joseph O’Connor; and Bedford Police Chief Robert Bongiorno made the announcement today. FBI Miami and the Monroe County (FL) Sheriff’s Office provided valuable assistance with the investigation.
