Abstract

The psychometric, forensic and social characteristics of 40 male offenders
aged 16 to 36 with learning disabilities were examined in relation to their
susceptibility to interrogative suggestibility. High and Normal Suggestibility
scores were identified using the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scales (GSS).
Differences in interrogative suggestibility within the group were found to be
largely the result of age and frequency and severity of offending. IQ and other
psychometric measures were found not to predict High or Normal
Suggestibility. The exception to this was a measure of oral comprehension
using the WOLD.
