On Attribution of Responsibility and Punishment for Rape.
L'Armand, K.; Pepitone, A.
It was hypothesized that adjudged severity of rape depends on sexual/social history of the victim, even when non-consent is established. Ss (N=650) recommended sentences for rapists for five types of victim when victim testimony was corroborated vs. non-corroborated. "Victim" effect was significant, "corroboration" effect was not. Sex differences were significant. (Author)
