Psych and Crime News en Fuego

Psychology and Crime News has a post up with some great links to recent research, including pre-existing biases that influence rape trial jurors, the impact of courtroom demeanor on juror decisions, the frequency and predictors of false convictions, and, even among these the best in my view, a great Australian study on recidivism, the difficulties of defining and studying it, and the basic factors associated with it in that nation. The latter has been a long-time interest of mine, and you can find a study we did when I worked in WI here as well.
