Rodney a veteran school teacher in my state went back to work at his school as a physical education teacher and assistant football coach this week. Rodney had been without a paycheck for a while. He was suspended with pay after allegations were made by three female students in his physical education class that he kissed one on the neck, pinched another one on her inner thigh while she was wearing gym shorts and putting a physical neck hold on the third female student. Once he was charged by a local sheriff's detective, his pay stopped until the case was litigated. His insurance company who covers teachers represents him regarding administrative violations made by the school system but when criminally charged does not pay for an attorney or any other legal expenses until he is acquitted.

Rodney and his wife stripped their saving account to retain the best criminal lawyer in the area. The criminal lawyer told Rodney to get him a polygraph examination but the attorney would not pay for it. After calling three polygraph examiners in his yellow pages, he was turned down because he did not have anywhere between $500 and $700 dollars for the polygraph fee. Rodney was surfing the internet on his home PC which he did a lot sitting at home out of work when he found the Polygraph Place. He clicked on his state and immediately saw my state banner ad built by the Polygraph Place. Rodney told me he read my web page called my toll free number. Rodney was straight up front with me that he was broke and behind on his house payment and explained his situation to me. I agreed to meet with Rodney and interview him if he would drive the 250 miles to my office but I reserved the right to refuse the polygraph examination if after my interview with him, I felt he was not innocent. You see, I was going to render Rodney a polygraph examination for one dollar. A decent school teacher and coach of our youth is a valuable resource and if I refused to use my God given talents as a polygraph examiner to Rodney, I am failing our motto of Dedicated To The Truth. There is no mention in the motto of Dedicated To The Truth For The Money.

After an hour and a half talking with Rodney, I agreed to administer the polygraph examination. I reviewed the copies of his warrants for arrest and the written police report I ask him to bring to me. I also called Rodney's attorney and talked with him very briefly. There were no witnesses other than each victim student saw the acts Rodney was accused of committing against the other student. There were no independent witnesses and Rodney had no track record as a bad teacher because I had him bring the last five years of his copy of Rodney's annual performance evaluation by his Principal. Rodney passed his polygraph examinations. A total of three specifics for each victim. I mailed my reports to his attorney. The attorney took the polygraph report to the prosecutors office the morning of the third continued court date. The persecution ask for a continuance and called the detective to re-interview the female students and offer them each a polygraph examination. Each student and with some encouragement from one of the parents to submit to a polygraph. The detective pushed the students one on one a little harder and each admitted lying on Rodney because he had failed all three of them on their quarterly physical education grade which in my state is a requirement for graduation and the three students were seniors. They failed to show up for class or was late. They set around talking instead of working out on the weight machines. Rodney had warned them three weeks before the end of the grade period of what was going to happen with their grades and they had three weeks to show him some imitative. They did not and he failed them. When the grades were released for the fall 2004 end of quarter, the complaints were made two days later by one of the girls parents.

The prosecution dismissed the cases against Rodney. After a meeting with the school systems attorney and Rodney's attorney, Rodney reported back to work and back on the payroll with back pay. We as polygraph examiners owe it to public servants such as teachers, police-firefighters, military personnel and on a case by case basis private citizens who are not public servants to give back to the community what God has blessed us with in regards to our talents and ability to determine the truth with a very high level of accuracy. What have you given back to the community lately? This is not my first time to do a $1 polygraph examination and I have never been let down yet.
