If you wish to write a letter of request for probation then there are few guidelines shown below that you can follow. However - the overall aim is to show to the judge presiding over your case that you are prepared to rectify your mistakes and create a way to redeem yourself from the crimes you have been charged with. Here are some more steps to help you:

  • Address the letter correctly

Make sure that you have your full name, address and contact details atop of the letter. This should then be followed by the address of the court and the name of the presiding judge that you wish to contact.

  • Be courteous

You must be polite, respectful and formal in your letter. There is no use in any other way of communication when you are trying to prove to a higher authority that you are ready to redeem yourself for your crimes. Use the correct terms of address and be sure to show the judge just how much you deeply regret the crimes you have committed.

  • Be detailed

Don't leave any of the important details out. Make sure to include the number of your case and any other relevant pieces of information that will make it as easy as possible for the judge to review your case. You also need to list in detail all the things you wish to do or are prepared to do in order to make amends for each of your individual charges. This may be some form of community service for example. You need to list out the details of your community service proposal in clear black and white.

Remember - if you point your point across clear, respectfully and in great detail, there is more of a chance that a judge will feel inclined to grant you probation as long as you truly regret your crimes and wish to make amends.
