As we discussed earlier this month, if you have been convicted of, plead "no contest" or "guilty" , to a felony crime you will be required to participate in a sentencing investigation. Whether you are charged with a crime in Johnson County, Kansas or anywhere across the state, the sentencing judge can consider your Pre-Sentence Investigation (PSI) and Level of Service Inventory (LSI-R) reports. Your attorney's ability to argue departure sentencing will also rely upon the scores in each. In addition, once your sentence is ordered, any related agencies (prison, probation, parole, rehab, etc.) will use this information to create a service plan.
Remember there are special requirements, rules and exclusions for those charged with Kansas sex crimes.
Are you at low risk for reoffending? Are you better suited for probation (even telephone-supervision), rehabilitation, etc. more than prison? Do you take issue with any finding(s) in your report? The Kansas prosecutor is not required to argue a lesser/non-confinement sentence for you. Only your a skilled Kansas criminal defense attorney will. Don't handle with part of your case alone. Call Attorney T. Morton NOW 913-602-7288. Payment plans are available.
