Sex Workers as Victims in Court

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



Abstract:

This experiment examined mock jurors’ evaluation of sex workers as victims of a sexual assault that is unrelated to their profession. Participants read a summary of a sexual assault trial that included details about the victim’s profession (either a full-time cashier, part-time cashier and part-time prostitute, or full-time prostitute). The victim’s gender was also manipulated. Preliminary results indicate that mock jurors are more punitive against the defendant and sympathetic toward a victim who is a part-time prostitute compared being either a full-time prostitute or not a prostitute, and that a female victim is more credible than a male victim.
