Is a pre-sentence investigation a bad idea?

Asked over 5 years ago - Spooner, WI

especially if the person has already pled out (guilty) with no idea of what the D.A. is going to ask for in terms of length of confinement...

Additional information

btw, not me -a friend did this against my advice... and his attorney let him!

    Answered . By whom. If you have foolishly pled guilty to a felony without knowing the consequences you would be investigated and a report generated whether you asked for it or not. Most states call it a pre sentencing probation report. You need the help of a WA lawyer. How you could have entered into such a deal is beyond me.
