By your opening admission, this is the bed that you made, so I doubt the Florida courts will get involved.

If victim wants to file a personal injury claim how does the law work for multiple states and multiple assailants. One assailant is a fugitive in that the person was paid to assault me
answered on Aug 3, 2021
Your question doesn't make a lot of sense. What is a "Me Too crime"? What state was it committed in? What state will be prosecuting? What does it have to do with Florida? And what would a personal injury claim have to do with a criminal prosecution?

The issue is not whether the student may be penalized…I think that you may be missing the big picture. The real issue is does the defendant have a privacy expectation from the secret recording of their alleged illegal behaviors?
