Inadmissible evidence and race-crime congruence: When negative information leads to a pro-Black bias in jurors’ decisions

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



Abstract:

The current study investigated the influence of defendant race and race-crime congruence on case judgements when inadmissible evidence was presented. Participants were provided with a criminal trial summary in which defendant race (Black, White) and crime type (Auto-Theft, Vehicular Manslaughter) were varied. Contrary to previous findings, but in accordance with Fitzgerald and Schuller (2009), participants evaluated the Black defendant more favorably than the White defendant and this effect was most pronounced for the crime of Auto-Theft. Results are discussed in an aversive racism and race salience context.
