Report On Convicted Prisoner By United States Attorney







NOTE: This report must be completed for the use of the U.S. Parole Commission in all cases in which the defendant has received a prison term of more than one year. It is an essential source of information for parole decision-making. Submit the report as soon as the defendant has been sentenced.

  1. DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFENSE: Give a full account of the offense and describe any mitigating or aggravating circumstances. Be specific about such matters as total dollar amounts or property values involved, drug quantities and purities, the number of victims and extent of injury, and the overall extent of any joint or on-going criminal conduct. Estimate relative culpability if the offense involved co-defendants.
  2. CORROBORATING EVIDENCE: If there are aggravating circumstances not established by the conviction, explain what evidence supports the Government's version.
  3. COOPERATION: Was the defendant of assistance to the Government? The Parole Commission will consider substantial cooperation otherwise unrewarded as a possible circumstance in mitigation of punishment.
  4. RECOMMENDATION RELATIVE TO PAROLE: This section is optional. (See the paroling policy guidelines at 28 C.F.R. § 2.20.)

Disposition of copies: This form is to be completed in triplicate. The original and one copy are to be sent to the Chief Executive Officer of the institution to which the prisoner is committed; one copy should be retained by the U.S. Attorney's Office. The institution copies should be given to the Bureau of Prisons' Community Program Offices (CPOs) for delivery along with the prisoner. If this is not possible, these two copies should be mailed to the institution as soon as possible after sentence is imposed. The CPO will be able to advise you of the institution to which the defendant was committed. (The U.S. Marshal can arrange contact with the local CPO.)
