How Religious Appeals in Death Sentence Phases of Trials May Affect Jurors: An Empirical Analysis

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



Abstract:

Lawyers often use religious appeals to influence jurors during death sentencing phases of trials. Some of the assumptions judges make about the effects of religious appeals on jurors seem erroneous in light of research on psychological concepts such as reactance theory, dual-processing theories, and the story model of decision-making. This study determined 1) whether a previously established typology of religious appeals was under- or over-inclusive; 2) how often judges in the U.S. permit religious appeals and why; and 3) how often judges rely on erroneous psychological assumptions. Implications for defendantsÂ’ constitutional rights and recommendations for the legal system are discussed.
