I was having a conversation with my wife that I was recording for private reference, however at the onset of the call, she stated that the phone was on speaker and that other people were listening. She made statements that essentially admit a wrongdoing on her part that would be helpful to me in court, but I am not sure if it is legal or permissable for me to bring it in as evidence in court. I read somewhere that her statement that the call was on speakerphone and that others were listening eliminated reasonable expectation of privacy. Is this accurate? I'm not sure what to do here.
The recorded call without her knowledge or consent will not be admissible in court.
