When are Certificates issued and how do I apply?

If you are eligible and receiving a revocable sentence, and your attorney makes a request to the Court, a Certificate will be issued at the time of sentencing.  If you are on Probation, your Officer can assist you with the paperwork.   If you are no longer on Probation or did not receive Probation, the paperwork is available at the Probation Department.  Probation will assist you in filling it out but it will be your responsibility to submit it to the Court that sentenced you with a letter of explanation as to why you want the Certificate.  The Court may request an investigation be prepared by the Probation department before making a decision whether or not to grant the Certificate.
