Abstract:

Credibility judgments can be one of the most difficult and important tasks for triers of fact. Much of the research concerning evaluations of credibility is based on interviews, surveys, or vignette studies. In this research, we analyzed full-text reports of criminal proceedings to explore how judges described their assessments of complainant credibility in cases of alleged child sexual abuse that occurred in the recent or distant past. Judges discussed credibility differently in cases that ended in convictions versus acquittals and somewhat differently if there was a long versus short delay from the end of the alleged abuse to trial
