The Law On Telephone Harassment Seems Vague; Can You Give Me A Few Examples Of Telephone Harassment?
Kansas has criminalized harassment by telephone or other “telecommunication device.” This harassment can occur in a number of ways, including sending text or images via a cell phone, calling another individual several times, even if the party does not answer the call. The key is that the party making the call or sending the text is trying to harass or threaten the other party. To clarify when the actions of a person are or are not illegal, it is important to look at what the courts of Kansas have already decided. Below are a few cases from Kansas that outline key points about the crime of telephone harassment.
