These are sometimes asked for by the court to help them decide on the best sentence in your case. They are prepared by a worker from the Youth Offending Service and will give the Magistrates relevant information about you.
When talking to the person writing the report, remember that anything relevant can be included in the report. Don't forget to mention the good things about yourself.
When you come before the court to be sentenced you and your parent / guardian will be given a copy of the report. You should read it very carefully. A Youth Offending Service worker will be at court and will assist you if you have difficulties reading. If you feel any part of the report is wrong or unfair, speak to the officer present at court and to your solicitor.
