Eliciting evaluative information from child witness in sexual abuse prosecution: The effects of question-type

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



Abstract:

Children suspected of being maltreated often do not manifest emotion when testifying, contrary to what jurors expect when assessing credibility. One alternative is for children to articulate their feelings with evaluative content. This study examined a random sample of 80 felony child sexual abuse cases from Los Angeles County. It found that children virtually never spontaneously produce evaluative content. Hierarchical logistic regression analyses indicate that whether children produce evaluative content in response to questions depends on the type of question asked. The implications of the research for how attorneys ought to question child witnesses in court are discussed.
