Find answers to your legal question.





Can a recording of me threatening someone be used in court as evidence?

I got into an argument over the phone with somebody. I said some threatening things and they did as well. They called the cops on me for harassment and I now have to go to court. Is she able to bring her cellphone into court and use the recordings on the phone as evidence against me? She has no proof that is was actually me on the phone saying what I said.

Depends on the state. In a two party state both parties have to know and consent to the recording. That's why they give you that recording on the phone telling you your conversation is being recorded when you call a bank to do certain things. So if she can't prove you knew about the recording it will be thrown out as evidence.

no, she has no proof it was YOU saying those things, but what she DOES have is the number she was speaking to which will match yours and once the phone company confirms that you made a call at the same time that the arguement happened and obviously you wouldnt hand a stranger your phone.. the odds are against you. Yes they can. They probably will. Your just going to be screwed. But if they DID say mean things back then it'll be on the recording and hurt them back.
