Dominic J. Caserta, Former City Council Member, Scores The Highest Possible on Polygraph Test

March 26, 2019 GMT

SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 26, 2019 / On January 21st, 2019, under the provisions of the attorney- client doctrine, Dominic Caserta participated in a polygraph examination regarding allegations of misconduct by a volunteer for Caserta supervisorial campaign, Lydia Jungkind. In an attempt to dispel all duplicitous accusations, Caserta requested a polygraph test and signed a waiver citing his participation as entirely voluntary.

Mr. Caserta was questioned on various incidents pertaining to the allegations after being accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with female students during his time as a teacher and candidate for the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. The examiner has conducted over eleven thousand polygraph examinations and is used by law enforcement throughout California. The examiner categorized the test as a ‘Sex Offense Lie Issue type test for question formulation purposes’. The polygraph examiner concluded that Dominic Caserta passed with the highest score, 99.9%. The primary accuser of the 2018 allegations, Lydia Jungkind has not participated in a polygraph. Mr. Caserta continues to maintain his innocence and that the incident was made in effort to derail his front-leading status as a candidate for the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors occurring 29 days before the primary election.


Relevant questions were hand scored by the polygraph governing board. The instrument accurately recorded his breathing, changes in blood pressure, and pulse rate throughout the examination period. The results proved that Dominic Caserta was being truthful in his responses, and, after careful analysis of the test charts, the examiner determined that the participant was in no way deceptive with his answers.

After being wrongfully accused of misconduct, all sexual harassment charges involving Dominic Caserta were officially dropped in August 2018 by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office citing “insufficient evidence.”

Having maintained his innocence, the former Vice-Mayor of Santa Clara, California, Dominic Caserta remains a model citizen and is ready to move on from this political hit, focusing on the well-being of his family.
