Jury Toughness: The Impact of Conservatism on Criminal Court Verdicts.
Levine, James P.
Crime and Delinquency, v29 n1 p71-87 Jan 1983
Compared criminal court verdicts after trials with and without juries. A study of 58,336 trials of persons charged with felonies showed that juries convict substantially more often than judges trying cases alone. Jury toughness is seen as a response to the growth of popular conservatism on criminal justice issues. (JAC)
