Parents May Soon be Able to Legally Eavesdrop on their Children in MI
Currently, in Michigan, an adult can get in trouble for spying on their kids and according to WOOD-TV face up to two years of jail time. However, that may all soon change because of a new bill that just passed in the House on Thursday, which would wipe out the current law and allow parental eavesdropping.
Eavesdropping is defined as overhearing, recording, amplifying or transmitting conversations intended to be private.
Lawmakers believe parents have the right to monitor their children until they are 18 because its a way to protect them from any potential danger.
The bill passed 105-3 in the House so it's expected to pass in the Senate which is where it's headed to next.
