Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Polygraph tests are generally inadmissible in court, Thus no prosecutor can use it as evidence during his hearing. With that known court systems are biased against an alleged perpetrator who volunteers to take such a test to prove his innocence.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
