CSI effect
 n.— «Juries, swayed by the special effects and scripts of television, have in some instances come to expect more evidence than is really necessary to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It is a phenomenon that has actually come to be known as “the CSI effect” in law enforcement parlance.» —“CBI a far cry from ‘CSI’” by Katharhynn Heidelberg Daily Press (Montrose, Colo.) Aug. 2, 2005.
