Any person who, without lawful authority, forcibly seizes and confines
another, or inveigles or kidnaps another, with intent, either:
First. To cause such other person to be secretly confined or
imprisoned in this state against his will; or
Second. To cause such other person to be sent out of this state
against his will; or
Third. To cause such person to be sold as a slave, or in any way held
to service against his will, shall be guilty of a felony punishable by
imprisonment in the State Penitentiary not exceeding ten (10) years.
Upon any trial for a violation of this section, the consent thereto of
the person kidnapped or confined, shall not be a defense, unless it
appears satisfactorily to the jury, that such person was above the age
of twelve (12) years, and that such consent was not extorted by
threat, or by duress.
