Criminal Profiling Evidence in Criminal Trials
2019-10-09T03:55:25Z (GMT) by
This thesis examines whether criminal profiling should be admitted as evidence in criminal trials. It argues that as it stands, criminal profiling is not a sufficiently unified, validated and reliable discipline for this purpose. Its use in criminal trials offends a number of fundamental principles of evidence admissibility and is unlikely to foster a rational and accurate process of fact discovery.
