The judge has ordered a presentence investigation (PSI) to be conducted prior to your sentencing. The PSI gives the judge more information about you to help in their decision for sentencing orders. After you have pled or been found guilty, you would have received a scheduled appointment while still at the court, in the probation department. For your safety and to limit your time in the Court, all required paperwork has been placed on the Court's website for you to fill out online.
You are required to fill out, in full, the Client Basic Information (CBI) form. Also, depending on your type of charge, you must either fill out the NEEDS assessment at (once you submit it, it will be sent to the Court) or the TCU screening, found here. You will be instructed of which one to fill out when you are given your scheduled appointment. Again, all required paperwork must be filled out in full.
Once your have completed the CBI and TCU, if required, you must either print and mail them to the court or save it to your computer, attach the documents and email it to the court no less than five (5) business days prior to your appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Failure to complete the required paperwork will affect your ability to be interviewed in a timely manner and you may have to be rescheduled, delaying your sentencing date.
You must be on time for your appointment. Once you arrive at the Court, your will remain in your vehicle. When the interviewing probation officer is ready to conduct your appointment, you will receive a call to enter the building. You may not enter until that time due to social distancing requirements.
If you have any questions or problems before you scheduled interview, please call 248-528-1790.
