Polygraph Testing for the Legal Community
The most common misconception about polygraph exams is that they are not allowed to be used in court. This is not correct, they are used in both criminal and civil courts as well as other legal proceedings. The issue with polygraph exams is, unlike DNA evidence (which has scientific validity and usually an accuracy rate of close to 100%), polygraph exams cannot claim as high an accuracy rate. In order for a polygraph exam to be introduced in court, attorneys for both sides must stipulate to the exam’s use in the case. If an examiner detects a deception by a subject, it’s unlikely that the examinee’s attorney is going to allow the exam to be used. This does not mean polygraph exams can’t be used by law enforcement during investigations to exonerate a person, verify witnesses truthful statement or develop additional investigative leads.
In civil cases involving infidelity, insurance claims, estate issues and others, a polygraph exam could provide the attorneys with a clear picture as to whose statements are truthful.
Tri-Valley Polygraph also offers Post Conviction Sexual Offender Testing (PCSOT).
