Pre-Sentence Investigation Report

Presentence Investigation Reports are prepared at the request of the Court after a finding of guilt of an offender.  This report can be ordered in any case, but is usually only ordered in contested felony cases in Bond County.  Where a bond report looks at the current life situation of an offender, a presentence report will cover the offender’s life situation from birth.  Information contained in the report includes; personal information, family information, criminal history, employment, education, physical health, mental health, substance abuse, interests and activities, and religion.  Recommendation can also be made concerning probation programs and community resources.  This information is compiled in a report and presented to the Court.  The report is used not only by the Court, but by the State’s Attorney, and Defense Attorney, while making their arguments.
