An Investigation of ‘Top-down’ Vs. ‘Bottom-up’ Processing in Post-Appellate Review of a Criminal Case

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



Abstract:

Convicted persons may seek assistance from advocacy organizations that help investigate and establish actual innocence. This experiment examined the extent to which the knowledge that a case has passed pre-screening influences case- reviewer judgment through ‘top-down’ case processing. Fifty-five undergraduate students role-played case reviewers, evaluated discovery for a criminal case, and evaluated the case. Prior to evaluation, half of the participants were instructed that the case was not previously adjudicated, whereas the other half was told that the case was referred by an innocence advocacy organization. Instructions significantly influenced participants evaluations, suggesting the influence of top-down processing of case discovery.
