Writing a letter to a judge can be one of the most important things you do for a person who awaits trial or is an inmate. You have to try and ensure to show the person in the best possible light, so they are seen as a good person who cares and the reason for this letter is merely an uncharacteristic blip.

The letter itself should be a formal letter. Use a typical letter style and address the judge formally as a judge. Always make sure that his name and address are spelt correctly as if not this can cause issues before you get into the content of the letter. Letters should be no more than two to three pages in length and no shorter than one. Anything longer risks losing the judge’s attention, anything shorter and you won’t deliver the point.

The letter itself should be sure to speak of the person in the best light. If they have children ensure to talk about how good they are with them, how dedicated they are and the effect a jail sentence may have on the children.

Also make sure to reference any people held in a high esteem in society like nurses, doctors or policemen who know the person and could be used as a character reference. Also speak about the person’s responsibilities and show how dedicated ad trust worthy the person is. All this will make sure the judge knows whatever happened was uncharacteristic and may sway them to give a less lengthy sentence or no prison time at all.

Above everything else in the letter, make sure it is addressed to the judge, is polite and argues the person’s case well. This will be the largest part of the effective part of the letter.
