Is a pre-sentence investigation a bad idea?

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...

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

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.
