Dr. Ed Wilfong :

There simply is no set of questions or tests. It varies from professional to professional and depends on what the court wants to know.

A pre-sentence report?

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Again, it is impossible to know exactly what will be asked. I would expect questions about what happened/or accused of happening, your history, upbringing, relationships. Nothing mysterious. Probably just trying to find out if you need help with anger. Outcome is likely anger management or counseling.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Really, nothing to worry about.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Answer the questions the mental health examiner asks truthfully.

Customer:

i can not afford or desire counseling

Customer:

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Then it may not be recommended. Just tell examiner. There is nothing devious or mysterious going on here.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

It sound like you plea you made included the evaluation and following recommendations.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Instead of going to court and risking serious jail time.

Customer:

yes

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

So, you just go to the evaluation and cooperate and see what comes of it. Then deal with the recommendations after you find out what they are.

Customer:

Should I take the polygraph results

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Can't hurt, but I doubt if examiner will want them. They are not there to determine guilt, just mental health needs.

Customer:

your proffession is bull
