Here is an interesting story about a women who put a small audio recorder in her child’s Teddy Bear to try and get recordings of her husband.
Custody case tip: Don’t bug kid’s teddy bear
Turns out, Little Bear was nothing more than Big Brother.
An Omaha man has sued his ex-wife after she or someone on her behalf inserted an audio recorder into their 4-year-old daughter’s teddy bear during the couple’s custody battle.
According to the lawsuit, Dianna Divingnzzo or her father planted a listening device inside Little Bear in an effort to lay bare any secrets of Divingnzzo’s ex-husband, William “Duke” Lewton.
The plan backfired, however, when the judge presiding over child custody proceedings refused to hear the recordings. Sarpy County District Judge David Arterburn noted that under Nebraska law, at least one person in a conversation must consent to a recording.
No one – not even the bear – consented in this case.
Luckily a judge threw it out, though did the kid consent to the recordings? That’s the thing with secretly recording audio, at least one of the people need to consent to it, otherwise it’s not admissible in court.
There are some real small digital audio recorders out there. One tiny one is the Forus Pro Series Digital Audio Recorders
Forus Pro Series Jet Black Digital Recorder
The Forus Pro series audio recorders are small and very easy to conceal voice recorders. We use this one for personal notes and to record meetings in small rooms. About the size of a pack of chewing gum, the Forus records with one button and has a built in microphone. You can record up to 32 hours with the 256MB version, using Forus’s proprietary format.
We have had clients who use these to give to their children to possibly record abusive teachers or other people your child comes in touch with. You can also use this to record notes to yourself, record important meetings, or even use it to record audio to possibly report problems at work or with a subcontractor or employee.
The uses for a digital audio recorder are unlimited. We have some even smaller audio options we will review in future installments. For more information on the Forus Pro Series Digital Audio Recorders visit our Spy & Surveillance Super Store.
