I admit that I did the act(s) charged in the juvenile petition(s). No force has been used upon me. No promises have been made to me by any member of the police department, prosecutor or anyone else in an effort to have me admit to the act(s) except as follows: I UNDERSTAND that the Court does not have to follow the recommendation of the police, prosecutor, Juvenile Service Officer or anyone else as to the disposition. I UNDERSTAND that under certain circumstances, if the Court does not follow any recommendation, I may be able to take back my admission and have a trial. I UNDERSTAND that, within the limits of the law, the Judge may give any disposition s/he feels is fair. My attorney, whose services I am satisfied with, has explained to me the penalties that the Judge may give me as sentence for the delinquent act(s) I have admitted, including paying a fine; paying for the damage I did; putting me on conditional release; requiring community service; returning me to my parents, guardian or custodian; sending me to a group home, crisis home or shelter care home; or sending me to counseling. I understand the Judge has the authority to place me in the New Hampshire Youth Development Center or, under certain conditions, in the County House of Corrections. I UNDERSTAND that if I am found to be delinquent for any offense involving the sale, possession, use or abuse of alcohol, or of a controlled drug or drug analog, the Court may and the Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles shall revoke or deny me a driver's license for not less than 90 days or more than one year for first offense and not less than six months or greater than two years for a subsequent offense. I do not have any questions at this time of my attorney or anyone else. If there are any questions of the Court or if there is anything I would like to say before disposition of this case, my attorney will let the Court know at time of my admission to the act(s) of delinquency. I understand that I may ask to have a copy of this Acknowledgment and Waiver of Rights form. Date Juvenile Parent / Guardian / Custodian As counsel for the juvenile, I have thoroughly explained to the juvenile all the above, including the nature of the charge, the elements of the act(s) which the State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt, and the maximum and minimum dispositional orders. I believe the juvenile fully understands the meaning of this Acknowledgment and Waiver of Rights, that s/he has the mental capacity to evaluate these rights; I believe that s/he does understand and evaluate these rights and does knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily waive all of his/her rights as set forth herein. Date Attorney for the Juvenile The undersigned Judge has asked the juvenile if s/he (1) understands the charges against him/her; (2) understands the possible penalties; and (3) understands the fact that s/he is giving up his/her constitutional rights. The undersigned finds that the juvenile has the mental capacity to evaluate the Acknowledgment and Waiver of Rights and finds that s/he does knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily waive those rights.
