   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.
