As part of the federal prosecution process, you’ll attend a Pre-Sentence Interview, During the interview, you will be asked a series of questions. From your answers, a probation officer compiles a report, called a Pre-Sentence Report, for the judge. The judge relies heavily on the information in your PSR, and uses it to help determine your sentence. Your RDAP eligibility can also be heavily impacted by the answers you give during your Pre-Sentence Interview.
