Kansas Law Creates New Terror Crimes

Global Security Newswire

Kansas has instituted a law that creates three new terrorism-related crimes, Infozine.com reported yesterday (see GSN, Sept. 19).


Two of the crimes — terrorism and illegal use of weapons of mass destruction, both carrying a maximum penalty of life imprisonment, have no statute of limitation. They are subject to the state’s electronic surveillance law, according to Infozine.com.

Furthering the commission of the crimes of terrorism or illegal use of weapons of mass destruction carries a penalty between 147 months to 653 months.

“First and foremost we hope we never have to deal with acts of terrorism in our state,” said Governor Kathleen Sebelius. “However, these steps ensure we have the ability to appropriately deal with anyone who commits these heinous actions” (Infozine.com, April 19).
