I was not present with the recorder. I left it and went to work? suspicious of wife?


 

If this is in your property it is not against the law, there is no law in any State that prohibits a person from recording events in their own home.

Thank you,


My wife found the device, and I want to be sure she can not press charges. I am in the early stages of a Divorce, and was nervous. It was a shitty move, but not illegal?

Not if this was in your home, these are common safety techniques as well, and you are allowed to place a camera or recording device in your home for protection as well.
