Admission of polygraph expert testimony is a little-known area of law. Motion practice in this area is not common, yet can be incredibly important to jury determinations.
The purpose of Federal Rule of Evidence 702 was to expand expert testimony admissibility where it can assist the jury. However, a lack of familiarity with the court rule within the bar and judiciary have led to the rule being used primarily to exclude expert testimony. In fact, many states still unwittingly adhere to the Frye standard from 1923, rather than the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1993 Daubert decision that recognized Rule 702.

Many states including Michigan rely on mental health programs for the treatment and monitoring of sex
offenders during their parole or probation periods. These treatment programs require the administration
of initial and periodic polygraph exams to verify treatment compliance, parole or
probation violations, and recidivism. Standards for Post-Conviction Sex Offender Testing (PCSOT)
have been established by the American Polygraph Association (APA) and American Society for Testing
and Materials (ASTM). The examiner must obtain special additional training and certification
to provide this type of testing.
