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



Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to examine the influence of accented or non-accented (dominant culture) speech for a White, Black, or Mexican American defendant involved in a high or low severity civil case. Findings indicated defendant characteristics influenced attributions, but the severity of the incident modified this. With a low severity case, the no accent Black defendant was believed most culpable. With a high severity case, the Black defendant with accented speech produced the highest culpability ratings. With no accent, the White defendant received high culpability ratings but was seen as being most truthful.
