Stranger Alibis and Eyewitness Identification: What is the difference?

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



Abstract:

Alibi evidence is generally considered to be exculpatory whereas an eyewitness identification is incriminating. This study examined whether identification accuracy and motivation to protect a (stranger) suspect differ when participants are led to believe they are providing an alibi or an eyewitness identification. This study manipulated pre-showup instructions to suggest participants’ responses would be alibi or eyewitness evidence. It is hypothesized that participants who receive eyewitness instructions when the target is present will result in a higher level of motivation to protect the suspect than participants who receive alibi instructions when the target is absent.
