My question involves criminal law for the state of: Wyoming
I have a question regarding required polygraph exams given as part of probation and counseling. Can someone tell me if it is normal practice to have a polygraph examiner to place a bag over the hand of the client before, and during the exam? This happened to my son, and he found it quite uncomfortable and odd. He said the entire time this bag was over his hand he could feel his hand begin to sweat. Condensation began to build inside the bag, and he could feel the electrodes attached to his fingers slide around. He mentioned this to his probation officer afterwards and he too did not seem to be aware of this as a normal practice. He never received an explanation on why he was subjected to this. I appreciate anyone that can give an answer in regards to this.
