Judicial consideration of story grammar details in child sexual abuse cases

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



Abstract:

Little research has explored how judges make decisions in child sexual abuse cases. There is indication, however, of judicial interest in complainant conduct after the abuse and after/around disclosure. And, story grammar elements sometime play an important role in perceived credibility of the complainant. In the present study we examined judicial references to story grammar elements about these two variables. In historic child sexual abuse (HCSA) allegations, judicial comments about attempt and direct consequence were more common in acquittals than convictions. However, in timely allegations of child sexual abuse (CSA), judicial commentary on story grammar elements was unrelated to verdict.
