Juror consideration of inadmissible evidence: The effect of decision making status on perceptions of justice

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



Abstract:

Procedural justice research suggests that jurors’ consideration of inadmissible evidence is due to their status as decision-makers. In this study, participants read a trial transcript, in which a defendant confessed to murder. Three factors were manipulated: Decision-maker status (Juror, Reserve Juror), Ruling (Admissible, Inadmissible), and Interrogation pressure (High, Low). In two additional control conditions, no confession evidence appeared, and decision-maker status was manipulated. Decision-maker status affected perceived defendant guilt, with jurors considering the defendant more likely to be guilty in control conditions. Results suggest important differences between decision-makers and non decision-makers, and implications for jury research are considered.
