Are tape recording allowed as evidence in court?

Best answer:


Criminal Records, Marriage & Divorce Records, Bankruptcies, Evictions, Contact Info, and more...


I was just curious as to if, you tape record someone, without thier permission, is it admissable as evidence in a criminal trial?


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

  2. 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.

  3. 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)
