dc.description.abstract This experiment was a replication and extension of Pickel, Karam, and Warner's (2006) study by using wiretap evidence instead of hearsay. The design was a 2 (admissibility) X 2 (unusualness) factorial with a control group that had no critical evidence. Participants were 129 mock jurors who listened to an audio-recording of a trial and made some decision about the case. Results showed that the critical evidence had no effect on guilt judgments. However, the unusualness manipulation did have an effect on the memory of the critical testimony, in that the participants in the unusual groups had a better memory than the neutral groups. Explanations of the results are discussed, along with limitations and suggestions for future research.
