Grant activity:

2009-2013 Collaborative Research:  Victim impact statements in capital trials:  Examining the differential influence of anger and sadness on juror sentencing decisions, Ben Wilkowski (Co-PI), National Science Foundation.

               This multi-year grant examines whether victim impact statements at capital trials affect decision making. As part of this grant, we collected hundreds of trial transcripts from capital cases that were tried in 2004. The trial transcripts are a wealth of information about actual trials and these are available to any interested researcher. If you would like to obtain information about the trial transcripts, and links to obtain the transcripts, please e-mail me at: narina@uwyo.edu. If you would like to know more about the case transcripts, you can find more information here
