Book details

Copyright year: 2008
Publisher: Vdm Verlag Dr Mueller E K
Binding: Paperback
Pages: 220
Language: English

A profuse body of research has been conducted examining the influence of extralegal factors on judges' sentencing decisions. Commonly found in this body of literature, is the finding that gender influences judges' decisions, with greater leniency being granted to female than male defendants. Theoretical explanations proposed my familial paternalism, however, suggest that findings of leniency for females may be overstated due to the interaction of gender and familial status impacts. While this argument has been supported in qualitative research, few quantitative inquires have been conducted. This book offers a comprehensive examination of the impact of these variables on sentencing and provides a quantitative examination of family status and gender on the effect of family variables. Interactions of these variables with offense type and race also are examined. Through this analysis, a more concise understanding of the impact of gender is provided.
