The Domestic Violence Pre-Sentencing Investigation: From Start to Finish

Event Dates
Probation officers are assigned the task of investigating and submitting a lengthy report of an offender's entire history for the court to make a decision regarding sentencing. The domestic violence offender is a different offender altogether compared to other types of offenders, so their reports should include more detailed information than other types of crimes.

This webinar will identify what added sources of information are beneficial for this type of pre-sentencing investigation, types of questioning for the offender as well as the victim, specific questions for strangulation cases, recommended conditions and types of risk assessments that may be introduced regarding recidivism and potential lethality for these offenders that could potentially aid in supervision after sentencing.
