I'm scheduled for a PSI appointment, what is that?

In all felony cases a Pre Sentence Investigation (PSI) is ordered by the court upon a conviction/plea prior to sentencing. The PSI report will contain an individual’s criminal history along with the current severity level of conviction(s). The report will provide the sentencing court with a range of sentencing options in accordance with the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines. During the PSI interview, the PSI writer will ask biographical questions pertaining to an individual’s work history, level of education, family dynamics, substance abuse history and mental health history. These questions will help the PSI writer formulate recommendations to the court regarding possible resources to be utilized should an individual be placed on probation/parole.
