Perceptions of Risk Factors of Juvenile Suspects’ False Confessions -poster

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



Abstract:

Although extant research has revealed factors associated with risk of false confessions during interrogations, jurors may have misconceptions about how these factors contribute to false confessions, potentially influencing the weight they give to such confessions during trials. Consequently, this study examined young adults’ beliefs about the relationships between empirically identified risk factors and false confessions. Survey data from 438 college students revealed that over 70% accurately associated poor Miranda comprehension with an increased likelihood of a false confession, but also inaccurately associated a history of thought disturbance and being easily influenced by peers as increasing the likelihood of a false confession. This presentation will compare participants’ views with the empirical data on false confession risk factors, and legal implications will be discussed.
