16. Legal Status.
a. If a person agrees to a polygraph test after having been advised of his
rights (paragraph 9), then his rights have not been violated. The facts obtained
can be used.
b. A legally obtained statement, admission, or confession obtained during a
polygraph test may be entered into evidence; the use of the polygraph does not
alter this fact.
If the examiner received an oral statement, admission, or
confession, he may testify in court about it.
The investigator should, however,
take the written statement.
The examiner, then, may be called, if necessary, to
testify in court as to the voluntary nature of the statement, admission, or
violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.
