Parallel assessment of competence to stand trial: A survey of forensic evaluators' practices with non-cooperative defendants

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



Abstract:

The ‘Parallel Assessment’ model for assessing competency to stand trial in non-cooperative defendants was proposed by Stredny, Torres, & Wolber (2009). It suggests methods for demonstrating a defendant’s functional capacity relative to trial competence by evaluating current behaviors. The current study surveyed forensic evaluators to determine the extent to which such information is relied upon routinely with non-cooperative defendants. Results are provided on the frequency of such evaluations, the information most frequently relied upon to describe functional capacities, and evaluators’ estimates of how frequently opinions based on such data (with no cooperation from the defendant) are accepted by the courts.
