Gender Differences in Perception and Verdict in Relation to Uncorroborated Testimony by a Child Victim.
Allen, Lisa A.; Nightingale, Narina Nunez
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v24 n3-4 p101-16 1997
Examines how the sex of mock jurors (N=330) affected their perception of child victim witnesses. Results indicate that males tended to rate the child's testimony as less believable, less important, assigned more blame to the victim, and yielded fewer guilty verdicts than did females. No main effect for victim age was found. (RJM)
