My husband and I had an altercation one night and he was charged with domestic assult. When the detective arrested him he was made aware by my husband he had taped everything. The detective did not seize the tape at the time of the arrest. My question is should this tape been allowed in court as evidence since there was no way to prove if it had been edited?It wasn't a videotape it was a handheld cassette recorder. The evidence wasn't brought forward until right before the trial and the district attorney didn't even have the transcripts yet. I was already going to dismiss the charges but I seen the transcripts after court was over and there was several things not on it from that night. They have now charged me with filing a false report.
