The demographics of defendants in felony courts have changed substantially since the time of Kalven and Zeisel’s study as well. 39 These changes have the potential to produce a markedly different set of trial outcomes than those reported by Kalven and Zeisel in the 1960s. 40 The American Jury and the Courts Two years after the publication of The American Jury, the Supreme Court of the United States, in the case of Duncan v. Louisiana,41 confronted the question of whether the Constitution required states to afford criminal defendants the right to jury trials in serious cases.

88 Baldwin and McConville focused upon acquittals about which both the judges and one of the other survey respondents had serious misgivings. 90 Baldwin and McConville reported a higher rate of questionable acquittals (11 percent of all trials),91 although they eschewed characterizations such as “perverse” or any other term suggesting that a verdict was outside the acceptable range of what a jury ought to do. Put the other way around, across studies researchers found that, in the view of expert observers, acquittals were legally appropriate in between 20 percent and 38 percent of the trials studied.

In the remainder of this book, we explore that question. 54 These data, obtained from the lawyers who presented the evidence, the jurors who decided the cases, and the judges who presided over the trials, offer more detailed and nuanced information about acquittals than has been available to those who previously investigated acquittals. We describe these data and our approach in detail in chapter 3 and use the data to examine particular patterns of acquittals in chapters 4 through 6. In the next chapter, we explore what we know about the presence and fate of the innocent through previous investigations of pretrial dismissals and trial outcomes, including, most prominently, Kalven and Zeisel’s monumental work, The American Jury.
