polygraphed

So I have a friend who we'll call Richard and Hadley. Richard has 2 kids 9&3 from a previous marriage. Hadley and Richard have one 4 month old together. Richard works while Hadley takes care of the 4 month old &3yr old. The older kids were placed by cps in the care of Hadley and Richard since bm is abusive to say the least.

So Monday afternoon Hadley rushed the 3yr old to the ER because she fell hard and hit her head. The 3yr old was at the table while Hadley was supposedly in the other room. The 3yr old misunderstood what Hadley told her and ended up falling trying to get out of the chair. The 3 yr is very tiny about the size of a 1yr old with the same mentality of a 1 1/2yrs old(maybe). Hadley puts the 3yr old in a booster that straps to a chair. Well the 3yr old managed to fall forward and hit her face first.

So this is where the story doesn't make sense 1 how was the 3yr old able to fall forward with enough force to scare the hell out of Hadley if she was pushed in at the table to eat lunch? 3 yr doesn't have enough strength to push her chair out 2 she hit her face leaving a black eye on her left eye and scratches on her right. And 3rd the 3 yr old hasn't ever had an issue with getting out of the chair. The ER doctor is the one who reported this to the cps case worker.

Now Hadley isn't allowed to be around Richards kids until the investigation is over with. She'll be getting polygraphed some time next week. I personally think she will fail the test and be prosecuted. There has been another incident with the 3yr old and Hadley that is also making cps question her. So my question is if she failed the test would you stay or leave??? I only ask because after talking with Richard it seems like weather she passes or fails cps won't do anything "since there isn't a smoking gun" and will stay with Hadley.

I didn't think polygraphs were actual evidence. Like I mean I know they can be used, but idk how serious they're taken because they're pretty fallible.

But she can be around her kid? That's terrible and ahe should be removed from all of them until an investigation is over.

Polgygraphs are easily fooled and no longer reliable.

Plus we could always just let the professionals handle it, and not a mom on CM...

Those poor kids. That's all I've got. Richard sounds like the fucking father of the year (gynormous eye roll).

The polygraph can not be used in court and can not be used to determine guilt or innocence since SCIENCE has proven it is easy to fake the test.

I would NEVER make a decision about my life based on an inadmissible test.

that's why Richard doesn't think things will go any further then questioning. But let's just say for argument sakes that this test is really reliable and Hadley fails. Would you believe your SO or the test? And take into consideration that there has already been one very questionable accident with Hadley and the 3yr old. And cps took the photos and report and sent it to a specialist who also doesn't believe hadleys story

Actually they can not be used as evidence in court AT ALL.

yes because cps isn't there for her child and there is no evidence of abuse towards the baby

ok fair enough. But who would you believe an ER doctor and a specialist who both say the story and the marks don't add up? And the other incident which is also very suspicious? Or your SO
