Probation Department provides adult pre-sentence investigation services to the Court in felony and certain misdemeanor cases following a conviction. The Court may refer the matter to Probation for preparation of a report, which in turn is used by the Court to determine an appropriate sentence. The Probation Report typically includes biographical data, criminal record information, and some legal stipulations, such as plea negotiations, sentencing factors, and a summary of the present offense. The presentence (probation) report also includes other collateral information, such as victim impact statements, restitution determination, and character reference letters submitted on behalf of the defendant. Prior to writing the report, the Deputy Probation Officer meets with the defendant, who together complete a written questionnaire. The completed questionnaire serves as the basis for the information contained in the pre-sentence report. Following meeting with the defendant, the Deputy Probation Officer compiles the information provided, coupled with anything learned during the interview, and provides the court with a cohesive document in the form of a probation report. In cases where supervised probation is recommended, the Deputy Probation Officer will also recommend that the Court impose certain conditions of probation, with the expectation that the subsequent (supervising) Deputy Probation Officer will enforce the defendant's compliance.
