Polygraph examination report has determined convicted sex offender Joe Lopez told the truth. Lopez was asked questioned about the crimes he was convicted of in 2006. News Center 23 has reported on Lopez’s exoneration efforts. The questions are confidential and part of Lopez’s writ of habeas corpus. Lopez’s legal spokesperson shared the unredacted questions and explained what the results imply, “It says that Joe has been telling the truth since its allegation surfaced Joe did not take a four-month plea bargain Because he believes in the justice system unfortunately the justice system failed and we’re having to prove that they failed him.” A polygraph and a sex evaluation are required six months after a convict is discharged from prison.
