As an example: a teacher was accused of having an inapropriate relationship with an underage student. There is no proof in text messaging, emails, etc. but there are recordings that the student took without the teacher's knowledge. Would the recordings hold up in court, or could the recording... Read more »
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?
First and foremost you have the right to remain silent...that means shut your mouth and stop talking and/or writing about what you did or almost did...find a lawyer and don’t talk to anyone but that lawyer.
