Answer:

While you working in segregation with Offender.? • •would you talk
about your little dick?
No.

Question:
Answer:

No, I can't remember what we were talking about. ] know in the
Recruitment and Retention room Offender_had seen some coffee

No.

Question:
Answer:

Do you know why these allegations are being made against you?
No, I consider myself a real stand up guy. J don't put myself in those
positions.

I informed Construction and Maintenance Supervisor Steve Fewkes that I was finished
with his interview and ifhe had any questions for me. He said, "no."

Conclusion:
On May 23, 2005, Polygraph Examiner William Tufts Polygraph Service administered
polygraph examination on Offender_to verify or refute her allegation against Mr.

Fewkes,
Mr. Tufts asked the following questions:
1. Regarding the conversation you had with Steve Fewkes, has he told you to suck his
dick? .
2. Has Steve Fewkes ever touched the back of your leg?
Based on the physiological response produced by the subject on three (3) polygraph
charts, in the opinion of this examiner, she was not attempting deception when she
answered "yes" to the above relevant questions:
At this time there is insufficient evidence to determine that there was misconduct on
Mr. Fewkes part. It is concluded that conversations, sexual in nature did occur in the
presence of Mr. Fewkes, which he choose not to address, however the allegations that he
suggested sexual favors cannot be substantiated due to a lack of witnesses to collaborate
the allegations.

Dana Carroll, CI crew supervisor, reported to me that the above is verbally abusive,
inappropriate and usingprofane language when in-processing offenders from CS and CI
