Criminal Restraint, (2C:13-2)

2C:13-2.  Criminal restraint
A person commits a crime of the third degree if he knowingly:

a.  Restrains another unlawfully in circumstances exposing the other to risk  of serious bodily injury;  or

b.  Holds another in a condition of involuntary servitude.

The creation by the actor of circumstances resulting in a belief by another  that he must remain in a particular location shall for purposes of this section  be deemed to be a holding in a condition of involuntary servitude.

In any prosecution under subsection b., it is an affirmative defense that the person held was a child less than 18 years old and the actor was a relative  or legal guardian of such child and his sole purpose was to assume control of  such child.
