Character Reference Letter for Court


A Character Reference for Court is a letter to be written by an absolute authority to inform the court of an individual’s character, preferably in a good light so that a more favorable sentence may be obtained.  This is especially useful for first-time offenders who need some authoritative figure to vouch for his good character to get a lighter sentence for his offense.

A character reference letter for the court is a formal letter and an important one. No false facts should be written in it as it is a serious offense to provide any false witness in the court. Whenever someone commits a crime for the first time and wishes to get a reduction in sentence, he can apply for a character reference letter to a court, wherein the court has to state the character of the offender. It has to be written with extreme professionalism. Any sorts of mistakes must be avoided.

Whomsoever It May Concern,

Subject: Character Reference for Mr. Ali Parker

I, Christian Dunn, the Principal of Goldman Community College, wish to make a character reference for Mr. Ali Parker who is currently one of Goldman Community College students.

Mr. Parker has been studying Medical Assistantship at the Goldman Community College for the past two years. He is a very hardworking student who is passionate about his course of study. Lecturers and peers find Mr. Parker friendly and helpful, suitable traits for the medical profession he is studying for.

It is unthinkable that Mr. Parker should hurt anyone intentionally as he is being trained to help someone in need. He has a caring heart and exhibits great patience with all he interacts with. All those who know Mr. Parker have only favorable comments on his character.  He is sincere and thoughtful; always putting others first above self. It is a surprise to find him tangled in a court mess as he is the last person to get into a fight with anyone. He has a warm and friendly personality.

I trust that the court will find Mr. Parker a good character and assist him to a favorable outcome in his current predicament. I am willing to be a witness for Mr. Ali Parker.

Please feel free to call me for further assistance.

Yours truly,

Christian H. Dunn

Discipline Master,
