Attorney David J. Hoey in North Reading said families run a risk by using their own hidden cameras to investigate.

“Look, it’s real simple: currently in the state of Massachusetts, you cannot audio record somebody without their consent,” Hoey said.

Massachusetts is considered a “two-party consent” state, which makes it a crime to secretly record a conversation. The law applies to video when sound is recorded.
