If a CPS worker is investigating you for child abuse or neglect, he or she may ask you to take a lie detector test. If you’re innocent, you may not see the problem with this. Unfortunately, lie detector test results can be skewed or misinterpreted in a way that makes you appear guilty even if you’re not. Because criminal charges may result from a lie detector test, you should always consult an attorney before agreeing to take a polygraph test. Polygraph tests are an opportunity for a CPS worker to interview you without legal representation present. They may use this opportunity to attempt to convince you to confess to a crime you may not have commit, or to frame questions in ways that trap you.
If the government tells you that you did not pass your lie detector test, you may feel hopeless and agree to something that will harm you and your child in the long run. Your lawyer will help you determine if it is in your best interest to submit to the test, or if it could potentially be damaging to your case. If you need help making decisions about how to proceed in your child abuse and neglect investigation, reach out to the Grabel & Associates team today.
