Pre-Sentence Reports


The pre-sentence report is arguably the most crucial sentencing document. Not only does it serve as a vital tool for judges during sentencing, but it also acts as the “bible” that the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) relies on to make critical decisions about our clients.

Unfortunately, many lawyers struggle to properly prepare their clients or ensure the report’s accuracy before it reaches the BOP.

In this episode, we’re fortunate to have Leslie Lockwood as our guest. Ms. Lockwood spent her career as a pre-sentence report writer in the Eastern District of NY, including several years as a supervisor. She’ll provide valuable insights into federal pre-sentence reports, covering topics such as best practices for pre-sentence interviews, the role of pre-sentence writers, and more.
