The CSI Effect and Need for Cognition: Influence on Verdicts, Verdict Reasons, and Evidence Expectations -poster

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



Abstract:

While popular media and anecdotal evidence have purported the existence of the “CSI effect” on juror decision making, little to no supportive empirical evidence exists. The current study investigated the CSI effect and whether need for cognition (NC) was a mediator. Participants were 207 undergraduate mock jurors who viewed a video recorded criminal trial summary and completed measures of verdict preference, verdict reasons, forensic television viewership, and NC. While NC itself predicted verdicts, viewership did not, nor did NC mediate viewership. However, heavy viewers did report significantly greater dissatisfaction with pro-prosecution scientific evidence and greater familiarity with forensic investigators’ tasks.
