Perceptions of defendant culpability in pretrial publicity: The effects of defendant ethnicity and cognitive load

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



Abstract:

The current study examined whether minority defendants are differentially disadvantaged by negative pre-trial publicity and the impact of cognitive load on potential jurors’ decision making. Participants read an article about a sexual assault case under high or low cognitive load and then rated their beliefs regarding defendant culpability, the amount of evidence against the defendant, and their own impartiality. There was a significant main effect of ethnicity on the amount of evidence participants perceived against the defendant and a marginally significant interaction of ethnicity, cognitive load, and participant sex. The implications of these findings for the justice system are discussed.
