Effects of Emotionally or Intellectually Biased Television Programs on Juror Decisions in Sex Abuse Cases.
McCoy, Monica L.; Nightingale, Narina Nunez
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v25 n3-4 p73-86 1997
Examined how intellectually and emotionally biased media presentations influenced mock jurors' decisions in sex abuse cases. Results show that, when assessed immediately, videos significantly influenced verdicts. However, with a significant time delay (four weeks) and no obvious connection between presentation and trial, no effects on verdicts were observed. (RJM)
