Can you tell me which state the recording took place in and if the person being recorded knew of the recording or not?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
It took place in florida.No the person did not know he was being recorded.
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 8 years ago.
Sorry for the delay


Florida law makes it a criminal offense to record the conversation of a person covertly. So, if you record a conversation, over the phone or otherwise and do not tell the other person, this can be punished under Florida law.

As well, the court will not allow the use of the recording if the other party was not aware of the recording
