Bias against LGBTQ+ people is well documented; less studied, however, is how this impacts their experiences in the criminal justice system. With little research confirming or disconfirming this bias, scholars do not know how bias influences these outcomes. This study measures bias as it impacts justice-involved homosexual individuals through differences in stigma and punitive attitudes. Results bear on equity during jury trials and inform the role of bias in sentencing.
