The case stemmed from an altercation between a Manchester West High school student and a police officer that was caught on a cellphone video.
Adam Mueller, 30, got a standing ovation from a small army of supporters as he entered the courtroom Monday morning. Mueller was accused of recording telephone conversations with a police captain and two school officials without their knowledge.
Portions of the calls were posted on a blog CopBlock.org, along with the cellphone video of a student in handcuffs being pushed onto a table at West High School on Oct. 3.
"The defendant recorded telephone conversations that he had with three people," said Assistant Hillsborough County Attorney Michael Valentine. "He did it purposefully. He put it on the Internet for display. He videotaped himself making those calls."
