    That depends on the laws of the state you are in (check local and state ordinances)

    It depends, if you were part of that conversation and/or if it was directed at you (voice-mail message) then yes.

    Id say no. But then there was Nixon.

    if the person was informed that they were being recorded, then its admissable, unless theres a wiretap warrant, and thats only granted in rico cases i think. but anyhow, how many people are going to say incrimnating things once they are told they are being recorded.

    IT depends on what state and what crime. If its like a security camera type thing, then yes. Anything else and youd have to check with your state (and a lawyer)
