CVSA nearly ruins innocent man, polygraph saves the day - Submitted by Asher Vandenburg - San Antonio TX. See Asher's listing on polygraphplace.com to inquire about his services

Mr. John called my office in November of 2000. He stated that he had been charged with Assault on a Juvenile and had failed a Sheriff's Department CVSA (computerized voice stress analysis) examination. Mr. John stated that he did not strike a juvenile and could not understand why the CVSA showed that he was lying about not doing so. He asked if I would conduct a polygraph examination on him to help him prove his innocence. He further stated that time was now short as a court date was already set. I said that I would travel to Dunn, North Carolina the next day and conduct a polygraph examination on him and see if he was being truthful about this whole incident.

The polygraph examination charts showed No Deception Indicated. Upon learning of the results of the polygraph examination the Harnett County District Attorney dropped the charges against Mr. John. A few days after the charges were dropped a young man came to Mr. John and admitted that the young juvenile had lied about Mr. John striking him just to get him in trouble due to Mr. John banning him and his unruly friends from playing on his playground. Mr. John then went to the CVSA operator and told him of the events and the CVSA operator said that the CVSA showed an inconclusive on him but that the CVSA school told him that on an inconclusive showing to tell the examinee that he was lying. So much for CVSA accuracy.
