Well here is the story I was told. Seems that a family friends daughter (17) was txting with another older guy (37 or 38)that was a friend of the family. Sexting went on and he is now facing charges. Her phone was not looked at as she cleared the history. Somehow the parents got the carrier to give them 5 days of records on paper. There were no copies of the pictures, but it did show pictures had been sent. My question is, I thought this was illegal per privacy laws. Her parents pay the bill so that might make the difference. But it got me to thinking, If it isn't against the law, and the parents are the ones paying the bill, wouldn't a service where all txt and MMS messages from a kids phone also be forwarded to a parents phone automatically be offered. Now before we get into wiretapping laws and such, Idaho is a one party state, meaning as long as one party knows it is being recorded it is legal. And no, I'm not the Uncle Paul.
