UK: “Lie-Detector Tests for Sex Offenders”

The Telegraph reports. Excerpt:

Sex offenders will face compulsory lie-detector tests, the Government has announced.

Ministers want to use polygraph tests on sex offenders who have been released from jail on licence.

The move will ensure they are telling the truth about their behaviour, such as obeying bail conditions to keep away from schools and playgrounds.

The idea has been piloted on a voluntary basis in 10 areas across England but it will now be extended under a new Management of Offenders Bill on a compulsory basis.
