ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA- It's no lie for a man who taught others how to beat a lie detector. He got eight months in prison for wire fraud and obstructing a government proceeding. Chad Dixon pleaded guilty in the case involving his business, Polygraph Consultants of America. Prosecutors say Dixon was paid $1,000 by dozens of people he taught to beat a lie detector as they applied for federal government jobs. His lawyer contends its the first case of its kind in the country. Dixon says some of the training he passed on was telling people to relax on certain questions, pinch their abdominal muscles and silently county backward in increments of three on other questions.
