Expert on Lying Gets Two Years for It

OKLAHOMA CITY (CN) - A former Oklahoma City cop was sentenced to two years in federal prison for training his clients how to lie and hide crimes on polygraph exams.
Douglas Williams, 69, of Norman, faced up to 100 years in federal prison. He pleaded guilty in May to two counts of mail fraud and three counts of obstruction of justice.
Williams owns Polygraph.com, which trains people appearing for polygraph exams before law enforcement agencies and under terms of their parole or probation.
He was in charge of the polygraph section of the Oklahoma City Police Department Internal Affairs unit and has "administered thousands of tests," according to his website.
Prosecutors said Williams helped clients lie on federal employment suitability assessments, background investigations and internal agency investigations, among other things.

* He charged at least $1,000 for training in his Norman offices and at least $5,000 plus expenses for off-site training.
Williams admitted he trained an undercover federal agent to lie and hide involvement in criminal activity from an internal agency investigation.

* "Williams told Undercover A, 'I haven't lived this long and fucked the government this long, and done such a controversial thing that I do for this long, and got away with it without any trouble whatsoever, by being a dumbass,'" the indictment stated."
