Moral Restraint Law and Legal Definition
Moral restraint is a restraint upon the actions of a person, not by the exertion of physical power or the giving of directions, orders, or commands, merely by his conformity to wishes or desires of another.
In arrest the restraint is moral restraint imposed by orders fixing the limits of arrest. Custody and confinement import physical restraint. [UNITED STATES v. KOTOWSKI, 3 C.M.R. 454, 455 (N.C.M.R. 1952)].
