In Doubt: the Psychology of the Criminal Justice Process
Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey interview professor Dan Simon about his book In Doubt: The Psychology of the Criminal Justice Process. Simon is Professor of Law and Psychology at the University of Southern California.
The criminal justice process is unavoidably human. Police detectives, witnesses, suspects, and victims shape the course of investigations, while prosecutors, defense attorneys, jurors, and judges affect the outcome of adjudication. Dan Simon will talk about how flawed investigations can produce erroneous evidence and why well-meaning juries send innocent people to prison and set the guilty free.
