Jury Decision-Making in Cases of Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault

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



Abstract:

Participants (N=208) read a transcript of a fictional drug-facilitated sexual assault case (DFSA), issued a verdict, and answered a series of case-specific questions. Participants received a transcript capturing one of six conditions with varying levels of forensic evidence (negative toxicological screening with or without expert testimony or a controlcondition) and differing reports of the amount of time it took the complainant to report to the hospital for a toxicological screening (either 5 or 24 hours). As predicted, expert testimony impacted ratings of guilt with those receiving expert testimony rendering higher guilt ratings than those who were only presented with a negative test result. Gender was also found to influence mock jurors' verdicts along with
acceptance of rape myths. Reporting time was not found to influence jurors' verdicts or case perceptions.
