I failed a polygraph but I'm actually telling the truth. I'm scared to death I'm going back to prison for something I did not do. A lady I worked for had a wallet that came up missing and there was only two people there, which was myself and another girl. I am on active parole for credit card abuse but I am innocent of this crime I'm being accused of, I still failed the polygraph test that I was given after being interrogated and and was not in my right mind and very very upset. So they give me this test and I fail it, but I don't understand how I failed, if I'm innocent. They kept telling me that I'm going back to prison, that they know I took this wallet, they said they know that me and the girl was in cahoots together but this is not true, they even went as far as to accuse me of being in cahoots with my own mother which is best friends with this lady, which is not true either. They had me really upset and then give me the polygraph and I failed it. I don't understand why I failed but I did. I'm on medication for my mental state and having not taken it that morning, I was really not in my right mind. Please help me. Am I going back to prison for something I did not do?
Failing a polygraph does not automatically sentence you to prison, but expect criminal charges to be filed. Call your attorney. Good luck.
