Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Is he seeking to be bailed to live at your address please?

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : He was given bail last week at home with his Mother.He will be in court tomorrow to be sentenced we don't know any more than that as we are not given a solicitor and we are very worried what will happen to him thank you
Alex Watts :

Ok - so he will be sentenced tomorrow, is that what it is for?

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : Yes thank you
Alex Watts :

Ok - then this is simple

Alex Watts :

All you need to do is write a reference saying how well he is behaved, what he does for you, how he helps you out, if this is out of character etc.

Alex Watts :

Assuming the above is correct

Alex Watts :

It must be true, honest and to the point

Alex Watts :

You should say the good points about him

Alex Watts :

How he helps, what he does, how good he is etc

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : Yes I want to say that new friends he was meeting with have a hold over him I know he is very frightened but won't say in court
Alex Watts :

You can do that if you wish, but the Judge may question him on this.

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : I still don't know how to write all this down but thank you
Alex Watts :

If you want to draft the letter I can review it for you. But sadly site rules do not allow me to write it for you

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : Ok , but I have not written a word so no thanks
Alex Watts :

Ok - can I clarify anything else for you, now you know what to put in it?

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : No thank you
Alex Watts :

Ok - can I help with anything else today for you?

JACUSTOMER-s141eof8- : No thank you
