Abstract:

The experiment explored the effects of juror age (younger 18-21 years and older 60-80 years) and pretrial publicity (PTP: pro-defendant/positive, anti-defendant/negative, or unrelated stories) on juror decision making. Participants (N = 154) read PTP or unrelated stories and then one week later viewed a videotaped murder trial. The results suggests a negativity bias for younger jurors and a positivity effect for older jurors. Negative PTP had the greatest effect on younger jurors’ decisions, while positive PTP had the greatest effect on older jurors’ decisions. Also, younger jurors expressed significantly more anger after exposure to negative PTP than did older jurors.
