How Great is the Risk of a Juvenile False Confession?: Juvenile Offenders' and Adults' Perceptions

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



Abstract:

Because of the nature of false confessions, it is unclear how often false confessions are actually offered by juveniles and how jurors perceive this risk. Therefore, data from two studies were used to compare juvenile offenders’ (N = 183) self-reported likelihood of offering false confessions to young adults’ (i.e., potential jurors’) (N = 483) perceptions of this likelihood among adolescent suspects. Results revealed that young adult participants rated juvenile suspects as significantly more likely to falsely confess than did juvenile offenders. The difference remained when ratings were examined by type of police interrogation strategy, except for negative physical environment strategies.
