Capital Jury Agreement with Mitigating Factors: The Relationship Between Rate of Agreement and Ultimate Sentence Recommendation

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



Abstract:

Since the modern death penalty era began in 1972, empirical research on capital trials has identified general trends in mitigation, particular factors with mitigating value, and a correlation between volume of mitigation and the jury’s recommendation of a life sentence. However, the relationship between the rate of jury agreement with mitigating factors and a sentence of life or death has not been examined. We analyzed 352 capital cases from North Carolina and found that the rate of jury agreement with mitigating evidence is significantly related to the sentence recommendation of life or death.
