    Answered . depending on the facts. The court will determine if it's reasonable to continue a sentencing hearing. The legal term is judicial discretion. If the court ordered a psi and it's not completed it's reasonable to expect a continuance. Good luck.

    Answered . Yes, especially if the PSI isn't done. Because it is the government who does the PSI, it is important for any defendant to express true remorse about the circumstances he was in and the crime that was committed.
