It involves kidnapping a person with the intent to harm them sexually, to inflict bodily injury to them in some manner, or to terrorize them. You may also receive this charge if you use the victim as a hostage, human shield, hold them for ransom/reward, commit a felony, or interfere with a political or government investigation or activity.
