SYRACUSE, N.Y. — An Onondaga County sheriff’s deputy charged with falsifying timesheets is opening a polygraph exam business in downtown Syracuse.
Withro “Herb” Wiggins Jr. began doing business as CNY Polygraph on Jan. 23. The business is located at 499 S. Warren St., across the street from the Galleries of Syracuse building.
Reached by phone, Wiggins declined comment under advice of legal counsel.
Wiggins is offering a range of exams, from those preparing for a polygraph for future employment or criminal accusatory reasons, to “just for fun” exams for people to learn about the process. Exams start at $99.
Wiggins, along with deputies Crayg Dykes and George Buckton, were charged with falsifying Centro timesheets for bus security work they didn’t perform. The indictment accuses Dykes of receiving $1,732.50, Wiggins of $1,347.50 and Buckton of $770 as a result of the fraudulent timesheets.
All three remain with the sheriff’s office, but now serve in a paid administrative duty, Sheriff Gene Conway said in an email.
In a Twitter post dated 28 April 2014, Wiggins mentioned that he would be teaching for a week at the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center Polygraph Institute.
