"Our work is really about showing how psychology can be used to help courts and juries make more educated decisions about criminal offenders and civil litigants," says DeMatteo, who also directs the JD/PhD Program in Law and Psychology at Drexel University, and has a forensic psychology private practice in Philadelphia. If participants signed a confession written by the, experimenter, they were deemed compliant.

Not only did this, new scale, which they named the Pretrial Juror Attitude, Questionnaire (PJAQ), significantly predict verdicts in, five of the six trial summaries that mock jurors read, it also, showed incremental validity in that it predicted verdicts, suggest a general tendency for a juror to evaluate evidence, assess general tendencies toward supporting crime control, versus due process issues. of variables in addition to estimator and system variables. As a historical matter, confession has played a prominent role in religion, in psychotherapy, and in criminal law-where it is a prosecutor's most potent weapon. The relationship between psychology and law As Wells (2002) suggested the criminal justice system would do well to acknowledge the psychologists involved in investigating eyewitness testimony; as they can do for the justice system what the justice system cannot, namely conduct scientific experiments that isolate cause-effect relationships. Although, innocent participants mentioned this concern as well, they, were more likely to report that they waived their rights pre-, cisely because they were innocent and had nothing to hide, believed that others who watched their denials of guilt, would accurately judge whether they are guilty or innocent. attempted to identify their interrogators from photo arrays. This type of, reciprocal influence is surely a hallmark of interdisciplinary, in this chapter suggests, substantive applications of social, psychology to various legal contexts, more so than theory, development per se, characterize the relationship between.

Specifically, use to test whether a juror held legal authoritarian atti-, tudes or civil libertarian attitudes, or to determine which. First, suspects must understand the, understand the intended protections provided by, including that the assistance of counsel will protect them, from the adversarial nature of an interrogation. A complementary instruction to the standard mock witness paradigm, Paper presented at the American Psychology. At the same time, many insights from psychologi-, cal science, including theory and research in social psy-, chology, challenge the intuitive understandings that people, hold about a wide range of behavioral domains. The third process involves minimization, in which the inter-, rogator provides suspects with justifications for why they, may have committed the crime, implies that suspects will be, treated more leniently if they confess, and that confession is, the only behavior that will result in the suspect being released, interrogation practices suggested that the use of high, pressure techniques may be relatively uncommon (Kassin, et al., 2007). Then the empirical basis of the concept of IRI in the United States is established through a series of studies. Previous studies have shown that individuals were more likely to endorse the guilty verdict when the prosecution evidence was presented in a temporal order (story condition) than when the same evidence was presented in a nontemporal order (witness condition). The strength of the method lies in its use, of real potential jurors and exposure to PTP in natural set-, tings that allow people to pay as much or as little atten-, tion to the PTP as they would in real cases. T, this possibility, researchers have been actively investigat-, ing the ability of legal decision makers to evaluate scientific, (Lehman et al., 1988), but through their experience on, the bench evaluating expert evidence or through continu-, ing legal or judicial education, judges may have been, exposed to scientific principles often enough that they, have developed an ability to differentiate between flawed, and valid expert evidence.

State and federal, courts are increasingly accepting of research presented in, context and to educate fact finders (Monahan, W, Mitchell, 2008); however, some scholars have called for, social framework testimony to be limited to testimony that, educates fact finders about general causation but not spe-, cific causation issues (Monahan et al., 2008). Through community surveys, they identified, demographic and attitudinal characteristics that correlated, The scientists used the results of these surveys to develop, profiles of favorable jurors, and the defense team relied on.

In contrast, jurors are just as likely to, vote guilty when a confession was elicited through promises, of leniency than when no promises were made, even though, they do acknowledge that the voluntariness of the confes-, effect persists in the face of jury deliberation (Kassin, Wrightsman, 1985) and judicial instructions to disregard, Thus, even when jurors acknowledge that a confession is, involuntary (e.g., a police officer waved a gun in a threat-, ening way during an aggressive interrogation) and claim, that the confession did not influence their decisions, they, are more likely to render guilty verdicts than are jurors who, are not exposed to the involuntary confession (Kassin, in eliciting a confession is exacerbated if they view a vid-, eotape of the confession that focuses solely on the suspect, 1992).

First, equating identifications of, the suspect with correct identifications is unwise because, in the field, the accuracy of an identification is unknown. In recent years, psychologists from the clinical, personality, developmental, cognitive, and social areas have brought their theories and research methods to bear on an analysis of confession evidence, how it is obtained, and what impact it has on judges, juries, and other people. decisions: An examination of moderators and mediating mechanisms. Modern scientific evidence: The law and science of expert testimony. Delay reduced the effects of factual PTP but did not reduce. Although most of the studies of PTP, have been conducted in the context of criminal cases, PTP, also affects judgments in civil trials, with PTP exposure, increasing the probability that jurors found the defendant. Negative effects of media exposure are seen even, when jurors are exposed to media that is not specific to the, related to a case but does not include prejudicial informa-, tion about the defendant in the specific case, the likelihood that jurors will convict the defendant (Greene, are generally robust. These assumptions clearly rest on the ability of judges and, jurors to recognize invalid science but also on the abilities, of attorneys because it is attorneys who will file motions. Third, sus-, pects must have the ability to think reasonably about the, consequences that will arise from waiving or preserving, 2005), with children under age 14, those experiencing psy-, chiatric symptoms, and suspects who are mentally retarded, being less likely to show competence in these areas than, older children, adults, and those of normal intelligence and, with no psychiatric symptoms. Because witnesses made fewer choices, from showups, they were also more likely to reject cor-, or photospread.

According to social cognitive theory, individuals' cognition of and behavior toward others, including communicative behavior, are influenced by processes and structures in their minds, such as heuristics and schemata (Fiske, 1993;Kunda, 1999).

The current chapter describes two studies that assessed some of those sentiments by examining how mock jurors perceive child sexual abuse perpetrators based on the relationship between the perpetrator and child. In laboratory and, field experiments, shorter retention intervals are related to, more accurate identifications (Cutler, Penrod, O, of actual crimes confirm that witnesses identified fewer, suspects as the length of time between the crime and the, identification procedure increased (Behrman, and retention interval on eyewitness accuracy (Shapiro, Penrod, 1986). 2004) of the juries returned guilty verdicts. Research on explicit, and implicit gender prejudice represents an example of sci-, entific research that has been presented to legal fact finders, gender stereotyping shows that the content of stereotypes of, men and women differs reliably: women are seen as com-, munal, and men are seen as agentic (Diekman, 2000). What, variables do influence these judgments? Those who have no previous history, with the criminal justice system (i.e., no police record) are, more likely to waive their rights than are suspects who, have criminal justice histories (Leo, 1996b). All rights reserved. However, if a continuance does decrease trial coverage, immediately before the trial, what effects, if any, exposure have on juror judgments when there is a delay.
