If the appeal involves any United States Sentencing Guidelines issues, the appellant must submit a copy of the PSR with the appellant's brief and appendix. To preserve the confidentiality of the information contained in the report, the copy of the PSR should be placed in a sealed envelope with the words "Pre-Sentence Investigation Report" written on the outside of the envelope. Also, the appellant must write on the envelope the short caption and docket number of the case in which the PSR is being filed. If the case involves multiple defendants, the appellant must indicate on the envelope which defendant is filing the PSR.
