6. I know Detective Smith professionally through various police organizations, and that Detective Smith would be a good source of referrals when I start my private polygraph service. I made arrangements to reserve an interview room at the State Police barracks. I set up a table for the polygraph equipment and two chairs, one for me and one for the subject. The polygraph examination could be seen and heard through an adjoining room with a one- way mirror. 7. I had never met Robin Berkman before the date of the polygraph examination. 8. When Berkman and Detective Smith arrived, I noticed that a younger person was with them. That person was later identified as Kelly Connolly, Berkman's half-sibling. 9. Detective Smith discussed the crime with me and the information that Detective Smith wanted me to obtain during the pre- test interview. In police parlance, Smith “liked” Berkman for the crime, and was certain that with just enough motivation, the case could be cracked! 10. I began the polygraph examination by asking certain baseline questions of Berkman, with a focus on the areas Detective Smith had discussed with me, especially how the perpetrator could have avoided the store’s security cameras while brutall y attacking the clerk. Berkman claimed not to know, but also purported to have “thought a lot about that,” and then began to get emotionally upset. In my usual probing way, I asked Berkman whether the last few answers were accurate. Berkman then began to sob uncontrollably. Although Berkman was crying so hard it was difficult to understand what Berkman was saying, I am pretty sure Berkman said that Berkman was sorry for what had happened to the convenience store owner. Unfortunately, Berkman never admitted involvement in the December 17, 2011 robbery.

Berkman looked up, surprised, and asked if Detective Smith or Kelly had been able to hear or see our conversation. I answered, “Of course.” After a few minutes, Berkman regained composure and left. Dated: September 19, 2016 I affirm the veracity of the foregoing statement. Sam Perkins Sam Perkins

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
