Examining the Prevalence and Impact of Evidence Regarding Antisocial Personality and Psychopathy in Capital Cases

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



Abstract:

Although anecdotal accounts suggest that evidence concerning Antisocial Personality Disorder, sociopathy and psychopathy is frequently introduced by the prosecution in capital murder trials, to date there has been no systematic research to determine the actual prevalence, role or perceived impact of such evidence. Survey data collected from attendees at a national capital mitigation conference indicated that prosecution evidence concerning APD was quite prevalent. Evidence concerning these disorders was most often introduced by the prosecution in the sentencing phase to address a defendant’s risk of future dangerousness and was perceived to have had a considerable impact on trial outcomes.
