Can cross-examination assist jurors in detecting deception? -poster

Abstract:

This research examined the effectiveness of traditional cross-examination techniques compared to techniques derived from the deception detection literature in assisting jurors’ judgments of the truthfulness of witness testimony. Participants viewed a theft trial containing truthful or fabricated witness testimony that implicated or exculpated the defendant. Witnesses were cross-examined using techniques that presented damaging evidence at the beginning of questioning, techniques derived from deception detection research that presented with the damaging evidence at the end of questioning, or were not cross-examined. Cross-examination type did not influence jurors’ ratings of witness truthfulness; jurors rated exculpating testimony as more truthful than inculpating testimony.
