Pre-Sentence Investigations

This department provides the Court with pertinent information on the defendant’s background prior to imposing sentence. The categories included in the Pre-Sentence Investigation report were developed to aid the Court in deciding whether to impose probation fines, partial confinement or total confinement. Key elements of the report include the following: Defendant’s version, prior record, prior probation/parole and institutional history, family and marital history, health (physical, mental, emotional), education, employment, financial conditions, victim information, additional information, and attached supplemental materials.

A Pre-Sentence Questionnaire form can be downloaded, completed and submitted in order to aid in the completion of the report.
