I have been found guilty in Federal Court, what happens next?

Most likely the judge has ordered a presentence report that will be used at your sentencing hearing. Your case will be assigned to a U.S. Probation Officer for the preparation of the presentence report, which will include a personal interview with you. Attached, you will find forms that you are expected to completed prior to your interview. Please consult with your attorney for additional information and advice on how to complete the forms. If you have been convicted in either the Los Angeles or Riverside Federal courthouses, and have additional questions, please call (213) 894-3600 and ask to speak to the officer of the day during regular business hours, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. If you have been convicted in the Santa Ana Federal Courthouse, please call (714) 338-2900 and ask to speak to the presentence officer of the day.
