Death Qualification and Jurors’ Evidentiary Requirements for Conviction

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



Abstract:

Capital voir dire exposes jurors to pretrial discussion of the penalty phase of the trial, which may not only imply guilt, but also may desensitize jurors to the prospect of the death sentence (Haney, 1984b). In a previous study, we demonstrated that capital voir dire appeared to facilitate a presumption of guilt among eligible jurors who were less likely to convict. To explain this finding, the current study examined whether death qualification influences the type and amount of evidence jurors would need to convict the defendant. Results indicate that death qualification increases capital jurors evidentiary requirements for conviction.
