You have been asked by your professor to provide a summary of pretrial services to a small group of people from the community. This small group has very limited knowledge of pretrial services and would like more information. Create a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:
- An explanation of pretrial services,
- An identification of a presentence investigation report such as:
- why this is used,
- why it is important,
- what the purposes are (list at least two), and
- A discussion of how the presentence investigation can affect sentencing (For this part, you will want to select at least two of the items from the list on page 96 of your textbook, and tell how the response to that item could affect an offender’s sentencing).
Use at least one graphic or image in your presentation. Your presentation should be a minimum of five slides. The title and reference slides do not count toward the total slide requirement. Support your PowerPoint presentation with at least one resource. All resources used must be cited and referenced according to APA format.
