How to write a Character Reference for Court
Character references are a very helpful piece of evidence for a Judge or Magistrate to take into consideration prior to imposing a penalty/sentence. References can include:
- Personal character references – from a person who has known the accused for some time and can attest to his previous good character.
- Professional character references – from a person who has known the accused in a professional environment, for example as an employer or employee of the accused person.
