Capital Jury Selection: A Tale of Two Trials

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



Abstract:

Questionnaire data from 316 potential jurors in the trial and retrial of a capital murder case in San Diego, CA were analyzed to examine the impact of the death qualification procedure on the composition of the panel. Results indicate that strong supporters of the death penalty were more likely to survive a challenge for cause and be deemed eligible to serve than are those who are opposed to the death penalty. Associations between demographic and attitudinal variables and support for the death penalty are presented. Implications for jury selection strategy and the defendant’s right to a fair trial are discussed.
