Guide to writing character references
A character reference should aim to provide the court with a greater insight into the defendant’s personal circumstances, and to address the defendant’s attributes.
This helps the court to gain an impression of the offender and also address the question of who the defendant is in the context of the offending. Character references are a valuable tool in a helping a client achieve the best possible result.
