Court blocks Ill. anti-police recording law
Court blocks Ill. anti-police recording law A law enacted in 1961 in Illinois makes it a felony for someone to produce an audio recording of a conversation unless all parties agree, setting a maximum punishment of 15 years in prison if a law enforcement officer is recorded. A federal appeals court Tuesday struck a blow to any protection cops have under the legislation and blocked its enforcement in cases involving police.
