Knowing What's at Stake: Epistemology and Criminal Justice Reform

Professor Sarah Moss, the William Wilhartz Professor of Philosophy, Inaugural Lecture
Tuesday, January 25, 2022
4:00-5:00 PM
Virtual
In many criminal trials, judges are not allowed to inform juries of the sentences that a defendant may face if convicted. This prohibition is commonly justified on the grounds that informing juries about sentencing would “inject irrelevant considerations into the jury’s deliberations as to guilt.” Unfortunately, this justification is missing something big. In this talk, I argue that there is an important reason for jurors to know the potential consequences of a conviction—namely, without this knowledge, jurors may be unable to grasp the legal standard of proof that they are being asked to apply.
