Effects of Legal Education and Work Experience on Perceptions of Crime Seriousness.
McCleary, Richard; And Others
Social Problems, v28 n3 p276-89 Feb 1981
Criminal justice bureaucrats, including judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and probation officers were surveyed. Data indicate that both formal education and work experience underlie consensus as to seriousness of particular crimes. Furthermore, unlike the general public, criminal justice bureaucrats perceive crime seriousness in multidimensional terms. (Author/GC)
