Spike, I don’t think that would help in most cases. 

If the location doesn’t match and/or the sound doesn’t match then it could be useful data. But the majority of rape accusations don’t involve these circumstances.

The majority of rape accusations hinge on if a sexual act was consensual or not. How could this idea possibly help in these cases?

It is unlikely to be able to reconstruct a conversation from that, but it could establish innocence of an accused person by archiving a location and a background noise description (roughly.)
