The bilingual jury: The effect of non-English speaking jurors on jury deliberation and jury verdicts

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



Abstract:

The Latino population as well as individuals with limited English proficiency in the U.S. is rapidly increasing. In the U.S. justice system the latter population is excluded from jury service, except for in New Mexico, where these jurors serve with the help of an interpreter. This is the first study to examine the effects of bilingual juries on jury deliberations and jury verdicts. A 2 (monolingual vs. bilingual jury) x 2 (majority Anglo vs. majority Latino jury) mock jury experiment was conducted with venirepersons in New Mexico. Results suggest that bilingual juries do not change the process a great deal.
