B4 Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 5, 1976 99 Tape Recording Case Suggested Christmas, "Is in the Air! From Post Wire Service TALLAHASSEE - The Attorney General's Office has indicated it plans to challenge the constitutionality of a state law prohibiting persons from tape recording their conversations without the consent of the other party. Deputy Atty. Gen. James Whisenand said this week he has filed a motion urging the 4th District Santa and his helpers have been hard at work putting the finishing touches on Mall decorations. And Santa will be in the Mall every day until Christmas Eve to talk to the kids. The Cub Scouts and Brownies have decorated trees . . . on display throughout the Mall. Beginning December 6 and continuing thru December 17, carolers will perform from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Main entrance. We hope you enjoy the choral series and decorations. And remember, you will find something for everyone at Palm Beach Mall . . . IT'S FOR YOU! SANTA'S HOURS: RCA Workshop Helps Out Santa Monday thru Saturday, 1126-1221 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays, 1128-1219 1 1 a.m. to 2 p.m. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. 1222 A 1223: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. 1224: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Court of Appeal in West Palm Beach to send directly to the state Supreme Court an extortion case involving tape recorded evidence thrown out of court because of the statutes. "The facts of the case would seem to make it the perfect test," , Whisenand said, adding the statutes prohibiting recordings "would seem to stifle law enforcement and consumer protection efforts." The case involves a Riviera Beach private investigator, Harold Walls, and Stanley Gerstenfeld who were charged in Palm Beach County with extortion based on a tape recording made by Palm Beach investigator Francis Antel. In an unrelated case, Antel has asked the Supreme Court to dismiss charges of forgery pending against him. As related in Whisenand's pleadings, Walls and Gerstenfeld visited Antel at his home Feb. 19, 1975, threatening physical harm to him unless . paid $5,000. Antel recorded the conversation and sought help from law enforcement officials, who arrested Walls and Gerstenfeld. Attorneys for Walls and Gerstenfeld challenged the admissibility of the tape recording based on statutes which require all parties to a conversation consent to its being recorded and prohibit the use of illegally obtained recordings in the state's court. Palm Beach County Circuit Court Judge Timothy Poulton upheld the admissibility of the recording but a month later Judge Emery J. Newell, acting on a petition for rehearing, threw the recording out. The state appealed Newell's ruling to the 4th District Court Sept. 15, 1975. The tape recording law has never been reviewed by the Florida Supreme Court and Whisenand says the issues raised "are of paramount public importance to effective law enforcement." The court should decide whether an extortion victim has a constitutional right to record threats made against him and whether such recordings can be offered as evidence, he said By MARY LAVERS Pott StiH Writer What is a child's Christmas without toys? A small stuffed elephant or a plastic car could mean the difference between a tearful holiday and a happy one for hundreds of needy children throughout Palm Beach County this Christmas. Liza Johnson is the mother of two such children who would have awakened to a bare tree and empty stockings Dec. 25. Both of her children are pre-school age and must be taken to child care centers while Liza, not her real name, works two jobs: one ending late at night and another beginning in the wee hours of the morning. Her life is described by social workers as "always going around in circles with seemingly no end. Even though she tries very hard, she just can't seem to make enough money to support her family. As a result of several unusual elves, dressed in jeans, pant suits and some with RCA badges attached to their clothing, Liza's children will receive toys this Christmas. For the past seven years, employes, past employes and local residents have spent many an hour in Santa's workshop in the RCA plant in Palm Beach Gardens, making old toys new. In conjunction with the Salvation Army's Empty Stocking Fund, the people in Santa's workshop repair usable toys to be placed in the fund's toy store later this month. Parents of needy families, whose names are referred to the Salvation Army, may then come in and pick out a toy for each of their children. Cash Donations may be sent to: The Empty Stocking Fund, PO Box 789, West Palm Beach, Fla., 33402. A list of the latest contributors appears below. Edward ft McKenns, S5; Nelson Diaz, 3; William J.
