I am needing all my information from my case so I can apply for a pardon from the president. I will be needing this for the mandatory information required for the application.. please help and thank you
A: I am assuming from your question that you have a federal conviction.
If so your PSR should be available at the U.S. probation office
in the district your were sentenced. Also the attorney who represented
you at the time should have a copy. If that fails you could file a pro se
motion in that court asking the Judge to have the clerk of the court
release a copy of the PSR to you. Since it is not public record the clerk
cannot release it without a court order.
