OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former Oklahoma City police officer who owned Polygraph.com has been sentenced to two years in prison for training customers to lie and conceal crimes during polygraph examinations.

Federal prosecutors say 69-year-old Douglas Williams of Norman was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City.

Williams pleaded guilty in May to two counts of mail fraud and three counts of witness tampering. He admitted training one person who was posing as a federal law officer to lie and conceal involvement in criminal activity and to training a second person posing as an applicant for a federal job to lie and conceal crimes in a pre-employment polygraph exam. He also instructed customers to deny receiving his polygraph training.

Williams’ attorney had asked for a sentence of probation or home confinement.
