Generally not. Wisconsin statutes allow the Dept. of Corrections to force certain people on supervision to take a polygraph, but the results cannot be used against the person. However, statements made in the course of the examination may be used. Because of that, it is a good idea to consult with a lawyer before taking the exam to make sure you understand what not to do or say.

failing can't get you revoked but on certain sex offender probation, you can be revoked for not taking the polygraph.
