College Students' Assumptions About Risk Factors for Juvenile False Confessions.

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Previous research has shown that specific characteristics of juveniles and interrogations are associated with heightened risks of false confessions. Courts typically consider such factors when applying the totality of circumstances test to determine the validity of a Miranda waiver and the admissibility of a confession. Because jurors accept confessions as one of the most powerful pieces of evidence, it also is important to examine potential jurors’ assumptions about juveniles’ risks for falsely confessing. Therefore, this study examined approximately 500 participants’ ratings of specific characteristics of a juvenile suspect and the interrogation as risk factors for false confessions.
