I fully understand the Violation of Probation of which I stand accused. I understand that I am under no obligation to plead TRUE, and that even after signing this form I am still under no obligation to plead TRUE. I understand that by pleading TRUE to the Violation of Probation I am giving up the following constitutional rights as to that violation: MY RIGHT to a speedy and public hearing before a judge. MY RIGHT to see, hear and question all witnesses. This gives me the opportunity and right to confront my accusers and cross-examine them myself or through my attorney. MY RIGHT to present evidence and call witnesses in my favor and to testify on my own behalf. MY RIGHT to refuse to answer any questions if a truthful answer would tend to incriminate me in a new criminal offense. MY RIGHT to have the judge order into court all evidence and witnesses in my favor. MY RIGHT to have my lawyer continue to defend me, and to present all defenses that I may have. MY RIGHT not to be convicted except by proof by preponderance of the evidence with respect to all elements of the violation, which have been explained to me by my attorney. MY RIGHT to appeal, if convicted I GIVE UP ALL THE ABOVE RIGHTS ON MY OWN FREE WILL. I understand that by pleading TRUE, I am admitting to the truth of the allegation against me in the Violation of Probation. On my admission that I committed the violation, and the judge's acceptance of my TRUE plea, a finding of TRUE will be entered against me. I am pleading TRUE because I committed the violation. I admit that I committed the acts charged in the Violation of Probation and that I committed the acts purposely/knowingly/recklessly/negligently.

I understand that I may withdraw my plea if the judge exceeds the limits of a negotiated plea. If I plead TRUE without an agreement with the prosecutor or if the judge refuses to accept the agreement and I nonetheless decide to plead TRUE anyway, I understand that the judge may impose such sentence as in his/her discretion he/she considers appropriate, subject, however, to those limits prescribed by law for the underlying offense. My attorney, with whose services I am satisfied, has advised me of the penalties that the judge can impose for the Violation of Probation to which I am pleading TRUE. Felony or a misdemeanor and I understand that the underlying charge against me is a Class that the maximum penalty is years and the minimum penalty is years, and that in addition a fine may be imposed not to exceed $ dollars. I may be sentenced to the balance of the sentence and/or fine not yet imposed.
