Reply To: 23 yrs. ago: 5 yr. suspended sentence; today: still being punished


Here in CT before you get officially sentenced, a probation officer does what’s called a PSI (pre-sentencing investigation). And no matter what the probation officer determines and tells the judge in the ending comments of the PSI (good, bad or indifferent) the judge is going to sentence you according to the guidelines which means at least the bare minimum AND probation with suspended time hanging over your head if you violate as well as SOR.
So it’s pretty apparent that these PSI’s are a waste of time and state tax money.
