State law generally prohibits wiretapping and makes it unlawful to intentionally overhear, transmit, or record or attempt to overhear, transmit, or record the private conversation or another that originates in any private place or to intercept by any device, instrument, or apparatus a message sent by telephone, telegraph, letter, or other means of private communication (GA Stat. Sec. 16-11-62). Interception of a wire, oral, or electronic communication is allowed by one of the parties to the communication or with one of the parties’ prior consent (GA Stat. Sec. 16-11-66).
