Dan Ribacoff Gets Robbery and Attempted Rape Charges Dismissed for an Indigent Defendant.

July 06, 2020

After being brought up on robbery and attempted rape charges, a defendant was placed in jail on Rikers Island, unable to make bail. Proclaiming his innocence, the defendant requested a polygraph test , to which the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office agreed. The prosecutor then agreed that all charges brought against the defendant would be dropped if he passed the polygraph exam.

The defendant was tested by none other than Dan Ribacoff, who is the Founder and CEO of InDepth Polygraphs and is on the panel of polygraph experts and private investigators for the Office of the Mayor’s Assigned Counsel Plan (18b). Dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit and shackled at the by the hands and feet, the defendant was taken into the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office to tell what he claimed to be the truth.

After conducting the polygraph test, Dan Ribacoff informed the prosecutor that the defendant had passed and was innocent of the crimes that he was accused of. Within the following week, the defendant was released from prison and was free to re-enter society. The polygraph exam saved this man from spending a substantial amount of time behind bars for a crime that he did not commit.

It is a common myth that lie detector tests are not permissible in court. However, In NY state they are admissible to the court for motions to dismiss in the interest of justice and in post conviction appeals (440 motions). They are a forensic tool that has been used by law enforcement, military and intelligence agencies throughout the world since 1921.
