I have a legal question. I have a recording where my roommate threatens to go lie to the landlord to get rid of me and he admits he threatened to plant weed in my room.
Assuming I can prove my recording is legal, what should I do to get him in the most legal trouble possible?
Doesn't that defeat the purpose of recording someone? You aren't going to get anything out of someone if you ask them first.
A quick Google told me only 11 states require 2-party consent, so that's good that it's so small.
Being a participant in the conversation doesn't change the fact that he didn't consent to being recorded
It depends on where you live and what the laws and rules of evidence are. They're not the same everywhere
If it's a state law, why would "where you live" matter if the state is one party consent? Also,
>he didn't consent to being recorded
The guy wants to frame OP and kick him out of his place, but boo-fucking-hoo he didn't know his bullshit was being documented. That's what's wrong with 2 party consent laws.
Nigga if he talking bout planting weed in YOUR room it's still Y'ALL'S house so couldn't he get in trouble too? I think he's just trying to bullshit a bullshitter you both sound like negative Nancy gossip girls why tf would you snitch on him when he's trying to snitch on you? Two wrongs don't make a right quit being so spiteful move back to your mom's house and pour bleach on your pc so I never have to see your wack ass on 4chan again nigga
If he's trying not to get framed, making a preliminary move could be the smartest move, but waiting until he tries it would be more dramatic but could also have an unforeseen risk of failure.
Actually if it's a "one party" consent that means if OP is making the recording and in the recording he is the consenting party and it upholds. The other person does not have to consent.
