Impact of different methods of victim impact statement delivery at captial trials: Emotionality of statements and its impact on sentencing decisions

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



Abstract:

We examined emotionality of three Victim Impact Statements (VIS) methods used during capital trials: 1) family/friend reads a prepared statement (Free Narrative), 2) family/friends provide unprepared answers to questions posed by the prosecuting attorney (Question-answer), and 3) family/friend reads a prepared statement before the judge in absence of the jury (Post-sentencing).
We found free-narrative significantly more emotional than the question-answer method when presented to a jury. VIS presented to a jury yielded a greater number of death sentences when compared to VIS presented to the judge alone. VIS with the question-answer yielded more death sentences than the free-narrative method.
