Notes of Decisions

In prison disciplinary hearing, introduc­tion of actual ques­tions asked prisoner during polygraph examina­tion, re­gard­ing his involve­ment in alleged assault, constituted sufficient founda­tion for admission of record of polygraph test and conclusions of general polygraph examiner, notwithstanding that prisoner’s verbal answers were not recorded or introduced.
