Exculpatory Polygraph Result Admitted in State Criminal Trial

Debra Cassens Weiss, "Law Grad Acquitted, Relies on Polygraph," ABA Journal online (Sept. 5, 2007):
Judge Judy Hunter of Akron, Ohio, acquitted Sharma in a bench trial. She allowed Sharma to introduce the polygraph exam, the first time such evidence was used in an Ohio criminal trial in 30 years, according to a press release issued for the examiner, Louis Rovner.

Prosecutors had appealed Hunter’s decision to admit the test, but an Ohio appeals court said the issue was not ripe for review.
