Is felony criminal threat now unconstitutional in Kansas? If someone said I said I was going to kill them would I be charged?

The aspect of criminal threat including an element of reckless disregard was declared unconstitutional but not the entire statute. It is still constitutional for the prosecution to proceed under the intentional clause. Talk it over with your attorney. You may benefit from the case, depending on the exact facts of your case.
