Polygraph examinations are used to determine if a person is being deceitful when responding to specific questions. The process measures an individual’s physical reaction to certain questions to assess truthfulness or deceit. Due to lack of scientific proof of reliability, few state courts allow the results of the examination to be admissible as evidence, and Florida state courts do not allow them at all. Regardless of this lack of admissibility, polygraph examinations can serve as a valuable defense strategy for a person facing criminal charges.
