About: Wells effect

An Entity of Type: Thing, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

The Wells effect describes an empirical disconnect between people's judgment of guilt in a trial setting, and both the mathematical and subjective probability involving guilt. This finding shows that evidence that makes a defendant's guilt more or less probable will not necessarily make a guilty verdict more or less likely, which suggests that the judgments made in courts are not governed by rational decision making.
