Interview with Lewis

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Lewis: The pre-sentence process was a report that I filled out that was about ten pages. The head probation officer asked me a bunch of questions to determine if I was telling the truth. This process determined what my sentencing guidelines were going to be. This also provided them with more information to use against me.
