Polygraph Option

If a person accused of a Michigan sex crime requests it, law enforcement will administer a polygraph examination or lie detector test.  The test is not required.  Law enforcement cannot compel anyone to take a polygraph examination.

If an accused chooses to take the polygraph test, and it shows the person to be truthful, then law enforcement will consider dismissing the sex crime charges. In many cases, police agencies are willing to administer a polygraph examination to a suspect before charges are authorized, or during the investigation. This is why contacting a sex crime attorney is crucial. Expert preparation for the polygraph examination will deliver the best outcome possible for you or your loved one.
