MotherJones: A Private Prison Company Gave 1,300 Recordings of Confidential Inmate Phone Calls to Prosecutors by Tonya Riley:
Kansas’ US Attorney’s Office has admitted listening to opposing lawyers’ conversations.
Securus, the company responsible for recording the calls, has already faced legal action for illegally taping communications.
Securus has the Arkansas Department of Correction contract. They tell us they don’t record attorney-client calls because they are dealt with differently than regular calls because attorney’s phone numbers are entered in the system to not record them. I’ve never really trusted them, but I’ve seen no evidence they’ve done anything wrong in Arkansas.
