U.S. Atty’s Office Tries to Block Polygraphs in Upcoming Chandra Levy Trial

WASHINGTON — The polygraph issue is a messy one.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office is asking that the judge in the upcoming Chandra Levy murder on Oct. 18 block two polygraph exams from being introduced into evidence, the Washington Post reports.

A major problem, prosecutors contend, was that the polygraph exams weren’t given by a bilingual examiner and instead were done by an interpreter, a method considered far less effective and reliable.

According to a filing in D. C. Superior Court, prosecutors say defendant Ingmar Guandique, 29, took a polygraph test Feb. 4, 2002 and was asked whether he was involved in the disappearance of Chandry Levy, whose skeletal remains were found a couple months later in Rock Creek Park in Northwest Washington, the Post reported.

Guandique responded “no” and the polygraph examiner found he was “not deceptive,” the Post reported. The test was given while Guandique was in prison for attacking two joggers in Rock Creek park.

The other exam involves an inmate who claims Guandique told him he stabbed Levy and was paid $25,000 by now ex-Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.).

The polygraph examiner found the witness was being deceptive, the Post reported.
