Co-witness Information Influences Whether an Eyewitness Chooses from a Lineup

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



Abstract:

Given that multiple eyewitnesses for the same crime are rarely separated throughout the investigation, witnesses may share information about the crime and investigation process. Thus, social influence information may play a role in the decisions of multiple eyewitnesses. We examined whether learning a co-witness's lineup decision (to choose from or reject the lineup) and subsequent confidence could influence a second eyewitness’s choosing behavior. We found when the co-witness chose someone from the lineup, participants were more likely to choose someone from the lineup compared to if co-witness rejected the lineup or did not provide any information.
