Course Description

Length: 1h 10min    Published: 11/30/2018    
A presentence investigation report (PSI) is a report compiled from a number of sources an evidence intended to paint a full picture of a defendant's history, mental health, financial condition, etc. It is intended to assist the court in fashioning fair sentences and aides the probation officer in supervising the offender. More often than not, however, the PSI is incomplete, misleading, or otherwise inadequately prepared, and thus is not effective for mitigation purposes.
