Montgomery County lawmakers and law enforcement officials are pushing to plug a loophole in Pennsylvania's wiretap law that allows anyone to access personal phone records without your knowledge.
"That is a very frightening prospect on many levels. That is simply something that should not happen," Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said during a press conference to support legislation by state Rep. Mike Vereb, R-150th Dist., to close the loophole. "What that allows is for any criminal defendant, any person, to invade the privacy of another person by getting their personal cell phone records. I would suggest that is not a loophole, that is like the Grand Canyon."
