What is the law for illegal audio and video recording in Tennessee?
Tennessee is a “one-party consent” State regarding wiretapping. Tennessee makes it a crime to intentionally intercept any wire, oral or “electronic communication” to overhear or record a phone call or conversation unless one party consents to the conversation.
- Tenn. Code Annotated § 39-13-601: A person who is a party to a wire, oral or electronic communication, or who has obtained the consent of at least one party, can lawfully record a communication and divulge the contents of the recorded communication unless he has a criminal or tortuous (harmful) purpose for doing so. Violations are punishable as felonies with jail sentences of between two and 12 years and fines not exceeding $5,000. Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 39-13-602, 40-35-111.
- Tenn. Code Annotated §§ 39-13-604, 40-35-111: Recording or disseminating a communication carried out through a cellular or cordless telephone, or disseminating the contents with knowledge of their illegal origin, without the consent of at least one party, can be punished as a felony with a potential prison sentence of between one and six years and a fine not to exceed $3,000.
- Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-13-605(2): It is a misdemeanor to photograph, film or observe a person without consent where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy, when the photographing, filming or viewing “would offend or embarrass an ordinary person” and is done for sexual purposes( or gratification) Tenn.
