Effects of Defendant and Victim Race on Jurors’ Likelihood to Conform During Jury Deliberations

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



Abstract:

We investigated effects of defendant and victim race on mock jurors’ likelihood to conform during jury deliberations when expressing a minority verdict preference. Research shows that people are less confident in decision-making when they have more information to consider. Due to in-group/out-group biases, non-Black participants might feel that they have less information about Black defendants than White defendants. Thus, non-Black participants might feel more confident in their verdict and conform less when defendants and victims are Black than White. Our hypotheses were supported: Participants were more confident and conformed less when the defendant and victim were Black than White.
