Juror Instruction on Earwitness Testimony

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



Abstract:

Previous research has argued that juries struggle to understand the legal instructions given them by courts. The current study evaluates the current pattern jury Telfaire instructions for auditory identification (“earwitness”) cases. The study varies witnessing conditions and uses four instruction versions: a control condition with no reference to eyewitness memory, the standard Telfaire instructions, simplified Telfaire instructions, and Telfaire instructions modified with information specific to earwitness accuracy. Major trends in the data (N= 201) indicate that mock jurors are not sensitive to the strength of the evidence and that the instructions have no effect on verdict or juror sensitivity.
