The Death Penalty Attitudes Scale as a Moderator of Pre-trial Publicity

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



Abstract:

Research has shown negative pre-trial publicity (PTP) can have a significant effect on juror guilt judgments, but little is known about the characteristics of persons influenced by PTP. This study examined how the Death Penalty Attitudes Scale moderates the effect of emotional PTP in a mock death penalty case. Results indicate that the DPAQ was related to sentencing decisions, but mock jurors were not influenced by emotional PTP. Additionally, DPAQ moderated the influence of PTP on sentencing decisions.
