Anything you say in a cop car will be tape recorded

  I guess this means that anything you say in a cop car will be tape recorded. I know when I was arrested in Tempe they locked me along by myself in a Tempe police car for about 45 minutes. I suspect they were listening in hoping I would say something.

I guess this means that all police cars have tape recorders in them and they are taping anything you say when you are in them - as he sat in a police car, he was tape-recorded making flippant remarks about the situation.

I suspect they also use this as a tool when they are questioning two people. They will leave the two people alone in the police car and listen to them talk hoping to get information they can use against them in court. So if your ever arrested donít talk in the cop car about anything!

hmmm... what law is this???? it went into effect in 2005 and has something to do with making hiding bodies illegal? Yes I found the silly laws that government this!!! Jump to the end for the details!


Man gets 2 1/2 years for concealing body
Girlfriend's body decomposed in trunk of car

A man caught with his girl- friend's body in the trunk of his car in January was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison Thursday.

Michael Alcozer, 20, was not prosecuted for the murder of Dolores LeGault, 19. Instead, under a statute that went into effect last year, he was convicted in September of concealing a body.

LeGault's body was so badly decomposed after four days in the trunk that medical examiners were unable to determine a cause of death. Representatives of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and the Phoenix Police Department said that the death is still under investigation.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Richard Trujillo told Alcozer on Thursday that his conduct during that period of his life was "reprehensible and absolutely despicable," and he said that the law would not allow him to impose a harsher prison sentence than 2 1/2 years.

In order for Trujillo to impose that sentence, a jury first determined that Alcozer's actions had caused an emotional and financial impact on LeGault's family and that Alcozer showed no remorse. Indeed, Alcozer smirked through the proceedings.

The victim's father, Mark LeGault, called Alcozer "the most likely person to kill her" and told the court how he and his wife had taken Alcozer into their home, found him a job and bought him a car.

Mark LeGault marveled that Alcozer thought he would get away with the crime.

"Welcome back to the real world, Michael," he said.

Sandra LeGault, Dolores' mother, told how grandson Samuel, an infant, called out "Mama" as Dolores' casket was lowered into the ground at her funeral.

Dolores LeGault disappeared from her parents' home on Jan. 26.

Alcozer had been living with the LeGaults but was asked to move out twice because they believed he was stealing money and medications, Sandra LeGault said.

According to the prosecutor, Deputy County Attorney Kenneth Vick, Alcozer told the family that she had gone to Mexico. In the following days, various family members received text messages from Dolores' phone saying that she was all right.

But her body was found Jan. 30 when police questioned Alcozer outside his brother's apartment in Phoenix. Alcozer ran when police discovered the body in his trunk. He was tackled, and as he sat in a police car, he was tape-recorded making flippant remarks about the situation. The couple's son was in the car at the time.

Alcozer did not testify at his trial, nor would he speak to the probation officer writing his presentence report or at his sentencing.

Phoenix Police spokesman Sgt. Andy Hill said that Alcozer was a "subject of interest" in LeGault's death. "We are still actively investigating the possibility of that case being a homicide, and once we are done with our investigation, we will present it to the County Attorney's Office."

"It's far from over," Mark LeGault said.
