After Innocence: Perceptions of the Wrongfully Convicted

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



Abstract:

The current research examines the stigma of wrongful conviction. University students (N = 147) were randomly assigned to evaluate an average person or an individual who had been wrongfully convicted of a crime due to (i) a mistaken eyewitness, (ii) a false confession, (iii) a jailhouse snitch, or (iv) an unknown reason. Participants’ impressions, emotional reactions, and desired social distance were assessed. Participants were also asked to indicate the types of assistance they felt that the individual deserved. Although there was a tendency to be more negative toward individuals who had been wrongfully convicted because of a false confession, participants generally responded positively to the wrongfully convicted. These findings will be discussed in a legal context.
