False confession risk factor ratings by college students with and without criminal justice course experience

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



Abstract:

Particular risk factors are associated with increased likelihoods of juveniles offering false confessions. However, jurors may not be aware of these risk factors and their potential impact, creating bias in their decision-making. This study examined 437 college students’ perceptions of potential risk factors for juvenile suspects’ false confessions. Differences in perceptions and consistency with research were examined based on participants’ educational experience in criminal justice. Ratings from participants with course experience differed significantly from those without such experience for the risk factors of Miranda comprehension, IQ, and suggestibility. Implications for psychologists and attorneys will be discussed.
