You are a probation officer who has been directed to prepare a pre-sentence investigation (PSI) report. Remember, you are providing the judge with a complete picture of this individual offender, and what may have caused him or her to break the law.

You also want to tell the judge about the current criminal offense, so you need to ask the offender about the specifics of the incident. The judge is relying on the information you provide in the final report to determine sentencing and rehabilitative measures. It is up to you to ask the right questions and to elicit responses that provide an accurate depiction of the offender, how much of a threat the offender poses to society, and how best the offender can be rehabilitated or treated.
