Jurors’ Causal and Counterfactual Evaluations and Factors Affecting Eyewitness Evidence

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



Abstract:

Jurors are generally unaware of factors that affect eyewitness testimony, and current legal policies to sensitize jurors to eyewitness evidence have not been sufficiently effective. Encouraging jurors to think counterfactually about these factors may sensitize them to their causal influence. In the current study, participants made causal and counterfactual evaluations of good or bad witnessing and identification conditions (WIC). Inducing a counterfactual mindset before a causal one increased participants’ sensitivity to the causal roles of estimator variables in good WIC groups, and procedural variables in bad WIC groups. However, no effects on global evaluations of the eyewitness evidence were found.
