Taped Calls Home From Jail Can Be Used in Murder Trial

A New Jersey Superior Court judge has decided that prosecutors can use tape-recorded conversations in the murder trial of a teenager accused of fatally stabbing a Lincoln-Sudbury High School student in 2007.

Judge S. Jane Haggerty said that John Odgren, who was 16 when he allegedly stabbed a freshman in the school bathroom, is a smart teenager who knew the jailhouse calls to his parents were being monitored and had no reason to doubt prosecutors would not try to gain access to the conversations.
