I just posted a link to an article on jury perception of defendants with tattoos. It made me realize that I haven’t yet dealt much with the psychology side of Criminal Law & Psychology Blog. For a little bit longer, that will remain the same, as I’m currently in the heat of finals.
However, rest assured. I have lots to say and it’s coming soon! Does political ideology influence how a juror will act? Do group effects limit a juror’s effectiveness? Are juries fundamentally more likely to convict a defendant when the charge is more severe…or when there are a greater number of charges? It’s all coming in just a couple weeks. Think of it as a Christmas present!
