Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
You can tape people in your own home.Ohio's wiretapping law is a "one-party consent" law. Ohio law makes it a crime to intercept or record any "wire, oral, or electronic communication" unless one party to the conversation consents. Ohio Rev. Code § 2933.52.Thus, if you operate in Ohio, you may record a conversation or phonecall if you are a party to the conversation or you get permission fromone party to the conversation in advance. That said, if you intend torecord conversations involving people located in more than one state,you should play it safe and get the consent of all parties.
So only you need to know that there is taping in your home and consent to it.The other parties here need not consent to taping under Ohio law.The second party need not consent.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
