The Additive Effect of Expert Testimony on Over-riding Juror’s Prior Biases

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



Abstract:

The current study examined the role of prior biases when utilizing expert testimony, the effect of type of testimony (genetic, neurological, and psychological) verses amount of testimony (1, 2, or 3 pieces), expert testimony side (prosecution vs. defense), and the process by which jurors use the information to inform verdict recommendations. Results indicated that, overall, mock jurors (pro-prosecution and pro-defense) changed their recommendations in an additive manner, as an expert added new pieces of testimony. Interestingly, however, prior biases (pro-prosecution or defense) had the most influence on final verdict because biases predicted views about guilt and innocent at the outset.
