Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly Jr.’s felony drug trial continues to be pushed back, and he’s had harsher restrictions placed on his bond. As for the latter development, we may have an additional explanation.
Court documents from May 19 reportedly show that Jolly was “deceptive
” when quizzed about his bond stipulations by a polygraph services company. The test was voluntary, but Jolly agreed to take it. He just didn’t answer truthfully, readings showed.
In particular, Jolly was found to be most deceptive when asked two questions:
1. Did you consume any alcoholic beverage since December 15, 2009?
2. Have you drank any alcohol that you’re deliberately not telling me about since last December 15th?
“It is this examiner’s professional opinion that the polygrams revealed that there was deception involved,” wrote Mike Boyd of Boyd, Smith & Associates at the time.
Another examiner conducted the exam blind and came up with the same results. Given the opportunity to come clean post-test, Jolly refused.
Pictures were discovered days later of Jolly with a drink in his hand. Jolly was then ordered to submit a hair follicle test and abide by a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, among other things.
