A 13-year-old Illinois student has been charged with a Class 4 felony count of eavesdropping after recording a conversation with his school principal on his cellphone, according to Illinois Policy, an independent public policy group that lobbies for personal freedom.

Paul Boron, a student at Manteno Middle School in Manteno, Ill., reportedly fell afoul of the state’s eavesdropping law when he met with his principal and assistant principal on Feb. 16.

Boron used his cellphone to record audio from his conversation about detentions with Principal David Conrad and his assistant principal, Nathan Short. When Boron told the men that he was recording their 10-minute discussion, which took place in the reception area of the school secretary’s office with the door open, Conrad allegedly ended the conversation and warned him that he was breaking the law.
