State v. Sanders, 201 N.C. App. 631 (Jan. 5, 2010)

The trial court did not abuse its discretion by denying the defendant’s mistrial motion made after the State twice violated a court order forbidding any mention of polygraph examinations. The court disapproved of the State’s action in submitting to the jury unredacted exhibits containing references to a polygraph examination but noted that the exhibits did not contain any evidence of the results of such examination.
