An Attorney Will Need to Know About Your Criminal Record

Prior to meeting with an attorney, it will be helpful to gather information related to any past criminal charges and convictions, as well as current allegations. Be sure to bring with you any documentation related to the following:

  • Factual Scenario of the Allegations
  • Prior Involvement in the Criminal Courts System
  • Convictions, Deferral Programs & Probationary Judgments
  • Charging Documentation – Warrants, Indictments & Citations
  • Status of Charges in System

Prior Record Level

After determining the Class of Offense (A-I), the second consideration is of Prior Record Level, which is assigned on a “Points” basis.  There are six (6) Prior Record Level Blocks, where Level I involves little or no prior criminal history and Prior Record Level (PRL) VI indicates a greater number of points assigned due to convictions.
