What is the purpose of recording Casey Anthony's visitations ?

Asked by Pretty_Lilly (4655points) April 1st, 2010

Is it just to mess with her head ? Both parties are informed ahead of time they are being recorded so it’s not as if they will release crucial information for the prosecution or Casey will just confess. Is this standard policy for all inmates ?

She is a woman accused of murdering her daughter.

They record her in the hopes that she will provide evidence for her prosecution or defense to use in court.

By law they have to inform all parties in advance that they are being recorded or the recording will not be admissible in court.

@Dog They used to do the same thing to John Gotti even thought he was in for life and with a terminal illness !!

@Pretty_Lilly There is always hope to link to another crime or a slip up that will indicate an accomplice.

It is done for legal purposes and will be used as evidence if anything beneficial to either side presents itself.
