Believe me…Believe me not: Investigating the possibility of a dual standard in the evaluation of alibi and eyewitness evidence

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



Abstract:

The present study explores the idea that alibi evidence is often perceived as an ‘excuse’ rather than as information supporting the innocence of an accused. It was hypothesized that participants would assign more negative ratings when provided with exculpatory evidence labeled as an ‘alibi’ or an ‘excuse’ compared to the same evidence described in the form of a ‘statement’. Participants read case summaries that included both incriminating eyewitness and exculpatory alibi evidence and completed questionnaires evaluating their perceptions of the honesty and credibility of witnesses providing this information, as well as guilt of the suspect in the case. Results will be discussed in the context of wrongful conviction cases.
