I have decided to plead guilty, or admit to sufficient facts, freely and voluntarily upon the conditions which I have tendered in Section I. My guilty plea or admission is not the result of force or threats, promises or other assurances. I understand and acknowledge that I am voluntarily giving up the right to be tried by a jury, or by a judge without a jury, on these charges. I understand that the jury would consist of six jurors chosen at random from the community, and that I could participate in selecting those jurors, who would determine unanimously whether I was guilty or not guilty. I understand that by entering my plea of guilty or admission, I will also be giving up my right to confront, cross-examine, and compel the attendance of witnesses; to present evidence in my defense; to remain silent and refuse to testify or provide evidence against myself, all with the assistance of a defense attorney; and to be presumed innocent until proven guilty by the prosecution beyond a reasonable doubt. I am aware of the nature and elements of the charge(s) to which I am entering my guilty plea or admission. I am also aware of the nature and range of the possible sentence(s); I am aware that sentences can be imposed one after the other. I have been advised if my plea of guilty or admission to the charges could trigger the provisions of the sex offender registration statute, or lifetime community parole supervision, or commitment as a sexually dangerous person under G.L. c. 123A, §12. I understand that if I am not a citizen of the United States, the acceptance by this court of my plea of guilty, plea of nolo contendere, or admission to sufficient facts may have consequences of deportation, exclusion from admission to the United States, or denial of naturalization, pursuant to the laws of the United States. If any charge is being placed on file: I freely and voluntarily consent to the filing of that charge on the conditions listed on the front of this form. I understand that I have a right at any time to have the court remove it from the file and impose sentence (or schedule it for trial if no guilty finding has been made). I understand that the prosecutor may request the court to remove it from the file and impose sentence (or schedule it for trial if no guilty finding has been made) if a related conviction or sentence is reversed or vacated, or if the prosecutor proves by a preponderance of evidence either that I committed a new criminal offense or that any other condition listed on this front of this form has occurred. The prosecutor may do so at any time (or if a time limit is listed on the front of this form, at any time until that date). I understand that if the charge is removed from the file and I am sentenced, it may result in additional punishment in this case. SIGNATURE OF DEFENDANT DATE I have translated this document for the defendant. SIGNATURE OF INTERPRETER X SECTION III X DEFENSE COUNSEL'S CERTIFICATE (G.L. c. 218, § 26A) As required by G.L. c. 218, § 26A, I certify that as legal counsel to the defendant in this case, I have explained to the defendant the legal rights and consequences referred to in Section II above. SIGNATURE OF DEFENSE COUNSEL BBO NO. DATE X SECTION IV JUDGE'S CERTIFICATION I, the undersigned Judge of the District Court, addressed the defendant directly in open court. I made appropriate inquiry into the education and background of the defendant and am satisfied that the defendant fully understands all of the defendant's rights as set forth in Section II above, and that the defendant is not under the influence of any drug, medication, liquor or other substance that would impair the defendant's ability to fully understand those rights. I find, after a colloquy with the defendant, that the defendant has knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily waived all of the rights as explained during these proceedings and as set forth in this form. After a hearing, I have found a factual basis for the charge(s) to which the defendant is pleading guilty or admitting and I have found that the facts as related by the prosecution and admitted by the defendant would support a conviction on the charge(s) to which the plea or admission is made. I certify that I have advised the defendant as follows: "If you are not a citizen of the United States, you are hereby advised that the acceptance
