The 'CSI Effect': Do TV Programs Really Change Jury Behavior?
Prosecutors claim that jurors who watch shows like “CSI” on television are “wrongfully” acquitting guilty criminals when they don’t see the kind of forensic science evidence that they see on TV. The media has labeled this the “CSI Effect.” But is it true? This class discusses empirical research into real juror expectations and demands for scientific evidence, whether it might better be called the “tech effect”, and how the criminal justice system needs to adjust to these modern jurors.
