What is a Federal pre-sentence investigation report and what is it used for?

Video Transcription:

In the event that you have been charged by the federal government, the federal pre-sentence investigation report will be one of the most critical documents that you will review with your attorney. For purposes of federal sentencing, the federal court will be guided by the federal pre-sentence investigation. In the body of that document consists the accused’s criminal history. That criminal history will be used to determine the accused’s federal guideline range. This document is critical, because if there are errors in this document, they could significantly increase the time that the accused is facing.
