The Complexity of NGRI: Judgments as a Function of Attribution and Context

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



Abstract:

In Riggins v. Nevada the petitioner argued, in part, that the forced administration of antipsychotic medication to restore his competence kept the jury from observing his true mental state when he offered an insanity defense. This study investigated the effect of a defendant’s appearance and behavior on jurors’ judgments of NGRI. In addition, we examined the mediating effect of the individual difference measure of attributional complexity on jurors’ use of instructions. Results provide evidence of the role of defendant presentation during trial and the importance of identifying individuals during voir dire willing to consider factors at issue in Riggins.
