Wiretapping can be legal, but the regulations on wiretaps are very strict. If police do not adhere to very strict federal and state guidelines, any illegal wiretap evidence may be inadmissible in court. A suppression motion of an electronic date warrant (wiretap) can result in suppression of the illegally obtained conversations when the police have available more traditional forms of surveillance and do not to use or pursue them. Remember that a cell phone is considered an inherently mobile device by the New Jersey Supreme Court. If the police obtain a wiretap in New Jersey to conduct electronic surveillance of phone calls in order to monitor criminal activity, please note that the reach of the electronic data warrant extends outside of the state. That means that all phone calls received or placed outside New Jersey (Jamaica, California, etc.) generated to telephone and/ or cell phone numbers subject to a New Jersey Wiretap are potentially admissible in Court should a motion to suppress not be successful. When you become aware of an electronic data warrant on your phone, contact Clifford E. Lazzaro, P.C. immediately so that we may file a suppression motion challenging it's legality at the appropriate time. Remain silent and do not speak with the police about the case should they attempt to question you. Contact Clifford E. Lazzaro, P.C. right away.
