Below is a section of the Arkansas State Statutes that we believe apply to recording phone conversations. This information is not intended as a substitute for legal counsel.
From the Arkansas State Code
Ark. Code § 5-60-120: Intercepting or recording any wire, oral, or cellular or cordless phone conversations is a misdemeanor, unless the person recording is a party to the conversation, or one of the parties to the conversation has given prior consent. Arkansas law also criminalizes the "interception" of a message transmitted by telegraph or telephone in its "public utility" laws. Ark. Code § 23-17-107.
State law makes it a felony to use any camera or "image recording device" to secretly view or videotape a person in any place "where that person is in a private area out of public view, has a reasonable expectation of privacy, and has not consented to the observation." Ark. Code § 5-16-101.
It is always best to talk with an attorney if you have questions about the legal implications of recording calls in your state. We hope this information will serve as a general guide, and is not intended to substitute for expert legal counsel.
