Capitalizing on a here and now bias: The effect of immediate consequences on criminal confessions

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



Abstract:

Confessions are one of the most persuasive forms of evidence in criminal trials, and interrogations are designed to increase suspectsÂ’ willingness to confess to crimes. Drawing on research showing that immediate consequences influence behavior more than distal ones, we hypothesized that suspects confess to crimes to escape the immediate consequences associated with continued denials during an interrogation even though doing so increases their risk for worse consequences later (e.g., imprisonment). Results indicated that participants confessed more often when they were threatened with an immediate consequence, compared to a distal one.
