Beyond the Courtroom: Do Community Members Perceive a “CSI” Effect?

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



Abstract:

The “CSI effect” is a proposed phenomenon in which jurors who view crime shows like CSI create an evidentiary requirement of forensic evidence in trial that ultimately affects the jurors’ verdict. Research has assessed whether defense attorneys, prosecutors and forensic scientists believe in the existence of the CSI effect. However, until now, no one has asked jurors whether they perceive there is a CSI effect. If individuals are aware of the CSI effect, they may be skeptical of crime shows and therefore not as influenced by those shows as currently believed by the media and legal actors. In this study we explored whether community members have heard of the CSI effect, what they think it is and if they perceived that individuals who view crime dramas have a different perspective of forensic evidence compared to those who do not view crime dramas.
