Pickaway County Court Common Pleas Information


PICKAWYA COUNTY – Court information for the week of November 20th. A PSI (Pre-Sentence Investigation report) is a report written by an employee of the Department of Corrections (usually a probation agent) which gives the judge a great deal of information about the case and the defendant so that the judge can make a more-informed sentencing decision. The PSI usually includes a sentencing recommendation, however, the judge does not need to follow this recommendation and usually considers the PSI and its recommendation as just information to consider in addition to the arguments of both attorneys (DA and defense counsel). If the PSI recommends less than the sentence that the DA is recommending, that can be good for the defendant. If the PSI recommends more than the sentence that the DA is recommending, that can be a bad thing for the defendant. It really all depends on exactly what is in the PSI. The judge must consider (1) the nature of the offense, (2) the character of the defendant, and (3) the need to protect the public. The PSI usually answers many questions with respect to these three factors.
