Alaska Native News Nov 28, 2017.

A previously convicted sex offender, who was released this year has once again been convicted and sentenced, this time on a conviction of Distributing Child Pornography, U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder announced on Monday.

According to the release, 27-year-old Anchorage resident, Jay Leavitt, was sentenced to 20 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Sharon L. Gleason on Monday. Following his release, he is required to be under supervised release for the rest of his life.

Leavitt, who was convicted of Attempted Sexual Abuse of a Minor II in February, 2015, was released earlier this year, and within a short time, began distributing child pornography using a smartphone, even though he was under probation supervision.

“Between March 27, 2017, and April 7, 2017, Leavitt used a computer to upload 55 images to his Twitter and Gmail accounts, and eight video clips, knowing that those images and videos depicted minors  engaged in sexually explicit conduct,” Schroder stated.

During his probation supervision, Leavitt was subject to polygraph examinations, or lie detector tests, but, he was able to deceive the tests, successfully denying committing the new offense.

The conviction and sentencing was a result of a joint investigation conducted by the Anchorage Police Department and the FBI.

Speaking as an APA-qualified polygraph operator, there are no surprises here.

So-called PCSOT maintenance "testing" is a joke. It's essentially theater.

I suspect that people are beating the "test" these days in record numbers -- thanks in no small part to Operation Lie Busters, which unequivocally showed that polygraph countermeasures work.

Yes Dan you are absolutely correct. OPERATION LIE BUSTERS is an admission by the government that the polygraph can be beaten very easily. If that is true - and my prosecution proves that it is - that's prima facie evidence the polygraph is absolutely worthless as a "lie detector". While I view my prosecution as a travesty, if it  hastens the time when the government will finally stop relying on the polygraph it is well worth all the pain and suffering I had to endure.
  

It is time to put a stop to this government sponsored sadism perpetrated by those who use this insidious Orwellian instrument of torture called the 'lie detector'!  Education is the most effective weapon I have to finally put a stop to the abusive practice of polygraph 'testing'.  Help me by educating yourself and others.  My book FROM COP TO CRUSADER: THE STORY OF MY FIGHT AGAINST THE DANGROUS MYTH OF "LIE DETECTION" is available on Amazon in e-book or paperback - please get this book and send it to as many people as you can - it literally destroys the myth of "lie detection"!  Doug Williams

Doug,

I know for a fact that Operation Lie Busters, and in particular our government's prosecution and persecution of you, helped to bring the shortcomings associated with polygraphy to the attention of millions of people.

In addition, Operation Lie Busters provided examples of the U.S. government admitting that polygraph countermeasures "work" and led to a secondary investigation that provided a concrete example.

First in its case against Chad Dixon, when the U.S. Department of Justice argued for sentencing "enhancements" and a longer prison sentence, it implicitly acknowledged that polygraph countermeasures work.

Second, at your trial, CBP Special Agent Doug Robbins implicitly conceded that polygraph countermeasures work when he stated that your training poses a problem for CBP's polygraph requirement.

Third, in opposing your motion that you be allowed to engage in polygraph-related activities during your three-year period of supervised release, the U.S. Department of Justice implicitly admitted that polygraph countermeasures work when it avowed that you "taught clients how to pass polygraph tests even if they were lying."

Fourth, convicted sex offender Ray Dwight Sluss, who purchased your manual How to Sting the Polygraph, passed four post-conviction polygraph examinations.
