Massachusetts law defines bodily injury as that which results in a permanent disfigurement, protracted loss, or impairment of a bodily function, limb, or organ, or a substantial risk of death. Whoever commits a kidnapping while armed with a dangerous weapon and inflicts serious bodily injury on another person faces a penalty of imprisonment in the state prison for no less than 25 years. This also applies to kidnappers who sexually assault their victims.
In Massachusetts, anyone who kidnaps a minor (in this case a child under the age of 16) will face a penalty of no less than 15 years in the state prison.
