Coercion and Confessions: When do Jurors Believe Potentially Unreliable Confessions?

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



Abstract:

This study examined the influence of interrogation techniques (coercive or non-coercive) and certainty of guilt (known or ambiguous) on mock jurors’ verdicts and ratings of the interrogations’ coerciveness. Participants read attorney arguments, watched a videotaped interrogation and confession, and responded to a series of questions regarding the verdict, ratings of the interrogation, and the influence of evidence. Results demonstrated that the manner in which the interrogation was conducted was rated as more fair when guilt was known than when guilt was ambiguous. Additionally, participants rendered more not guilty verdicts when the interrogation was coercive than when it was not coercive.
