Lie Detector Tests Aren’t Always Accurate
Video Transcript: Are lie detector tests admissible in Oklahoma Courts? My name is Jason Sorenson, I’m an attorney in Oklahoma at Wirth Law Office, and today we’re going to be talking about lie detector tests in Oklahoma courts.
Well, the answer to that is no, they’re not admissible. Polygraph tests, lie detector tests, they’re not admissible in court because what those are doing are trying to determine whether the person is telling the truth or not, and that’s exactly what the job of the judge or the jury is supposed to be doing. That’s what they’re there for, is to determine whether the defendant is telling the truth or not.
So to have a polygraph test or a lie detector test in court would kind of defeat the purpose of the whole thing. And not only that, but lie detector tests aren’t always 100% accurate. So it’s really not in anybody’s interest to use a lie detector test in the court of law.
