The Cross-Examination Safeguard: Are Jurors Sensitive to Eyewitness Identification Factors?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The current research assesses juror knowledge and sensitivity to cross-race bias and exposure time. Five hundred and sixteen participants completed a pre-trial knowledge questionnaire, watched a videotaped trial, and completed a post-trial questionnaire. Consistent with our hypotheses, participants knowledgeable about the factors affecting eyewitness identifications were not more sensitive to these factors when rending trial decisions as compared to their less knowledgeable counterparts. Similarly, participants with specific knowledge of cross-race bias and exposure time were not more sensitive to the presence of these factors than participants lacking specific knowledge. Thus, juror knowledge of eyewitness identification factors does not safeguard defendants from wrongful convictions resulting from erroneous eyewitness identifications.
