Presentence Investigation

In the Medina County Adult Probation Department officers conduct background investigations on individuals awaiting sentencing.

The comprehensive written presentence report includes a synopsis of the interview, victims input, prior criminal record history, social summaries , the risk assessment (ORAS) adopted by the State of Ohio, and other relevant information which provides crucial information to the Court.
