I have never known [NAME] to be anything other than a man of integrity and to find himself in his current situation is completely out of character.
I am a (provide here a description which demonstrates that the writer is of good standing, so perhaps 'local businessman', 'Managing Director', 'Community Leader' etc) and am writing this reference in support of [NAME] of my own free will and in the hope that the Court will take into account [NAME]'s previous good character.
Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
