Judges' demographic characteristics and their ratings of juvenile defendants' adjudicative competency abilities

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



Abstract:

This study examined whether judges’ characteristics predicted their ratings of a juvenile defendant’s adjudicative competence in juvenile and criminal court. 342 judges reviewed a forensic psychological report about a hypothetical defendant; only the defendant’s age (12-17) and maturity level (less mature, more mature) varied across reports. Results revealed a significant difference between male and female judges’ competency ratings in criminal court. There were no significant differences in judges’ competency ratings based upon type of court in which they serve, years of experience, political orientation, or region of the country. Implications are reviewed.
