Abstract:

Data were collected from 100 capital trial judges in Florida who completed a survey which included several dispositional measures, the guilt and penalty phases of a capital case, and a list of 26 aggravating, nonstatutory mitigating, and statutory mitigating circumstances. Results revealed that capital trial judges exhibited higher evaluations of aggravating circumstances and statutory mitigating circumstances than nonstatutory mitigating circumstances. In addition, attitudes toward the death penalty, belief in a just world, locus of control, legal authoritarianism, demographic variables, and experiential indices were related to evaluations of aggravating circumstances, nonstatutory mitigating circumstances, and statutory mitigating circumstances. Legal implications are discussed.
