FAQs

Is a Polygraph admissible in court?

Generally, the answer is "No". However, if there is a stipulation by the defense and prosecution to admit the results, the court will then consider the results of the polygraph. The Santa Barbara Police Department often conducts polygraph examinations that are requested by both the prosecution and agreed to by defense counsel to verify the truth on many cases.
