Race-based pretrial questioning: Can explicitly rendering racial issues salient impact jurors’ decisions in trials of Black defendants?

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



Abstract:

The current study investigated the impact of race-based pretrial questioning on mock-jurors’ verdicts and case judgements in the case of a Black defendant. Mock-jurors were given publicly simulated judge’s instructions and some responded either privately or publicly to pretrial questioning before reading a drug trafficking trial summary. Results suggest that race-based pretrial questioning may result in overcorrection for racial bias, when compared to a White-no questioning condition, in verdicts and judgements. Anxiety associated with responding to race-based questioning and motivation to respond without prejudice were examined as potential mechanisms underlying the impact of the pretrial questioning procedures on jurors’ decisions.
