Alibi believability: The impact of salacious alibi activities

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



Abstract:

This study examined how alibi strength and a suspect’s claim of engaging in salacious alibi activities impact alibi believability. In particular, it investigated whether an alibi of watching an X-rated movie versus watching a regular movie caused differences in alibi believability, perceived likelihood of guilt, and ratings on various character traits. Undergraduates read a crime description and a mock transcript before completing a questionnaire (adapted from Olson & Wells, 2004). Participants gave higher alibi believability ratings when the suspect had a salacious alibi. Suspects with salacious alibis were rated as more honest, open, and less likely to be guilty.
