Decisions to Prosecute: Two Studies on the Effect of Public Commitment on Prosecutorial Decision Making -poster

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



Abstract:

Legal cases in which prosecutors ignore clear-cut exculpatory evidence and persist in the prosecution of innocent suspects may be related to the public nature of these prosecutors’ commitments. Public commitment to a decision has been shown to increase persistence in that decision even in the face of strong contrary evidence. Two studies (N = 259 and N = 311) examined the influence of public commitment on mock prosecutors’ decision-making. Contrary to prediction, both studies found that individuals who made a public commitment were significantly less likely to prosecute in the face of exculpatory evidence than were individuals who made no commitment.
