NOTICE OF RIGHTS
The defendant is hereby advised of the following rights as they affect the pending charges:
I will be advised of the charge against me;
The penalty range for the offense is:
Imprisonment in jail from 1 day to 90 days, and/or a fine from $1.00 up to $1,000.00 on non-minor traffic violations or ordinance violations involving alcohol or controlled substances; endangering the health or welfare of others; or involving eluding or giving false information to a law enforcement officer. However, imprisonment will not be a possible penalty unless the prosecutor advises the Court that they are seeking a jail sentence, in which case you are entitled to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the Court would appoint an attorney to represent you.
A fine from $1.00 up to $225.00 on minor traffic violations, or ordinance violations not involving alcohol or controlled substances, endangering the health or welfare of other, or eluding or giving false information to a law enforcement officer.
You have the right to counsel of your choice at your expense. If the City indicates that it is pursuing a jail sentence, the Court will appoint an attorney to represent you if you are indigent;
You have the right to plead guilty or not guilty;
If you plead not guilty, you have the right to a trial by judge or by jury;
At trial, you have the right to require that the City present evidence to convince the trier of fact (judge or jury) that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt;
At trial, you have the right to confront and cross examine any witnesses who testify;
You have the right to present evidence on your own behalf, and to have witnesses subpoenaed. You have the right to testify, but if you choose not to testify, you cannot be compelled to testify, and the Court cannot consider that fact to determine your guilt or innocence;
You have the right to appeal a verdict of guilty to a higher court;
By entering a plea of guilty, you give up all of these rights, there will be no trial, and you cannot appeal.
