New Jersey
I have been fully informed of my right to a reasonable postponement. I give up my right to have an attorney, to apply for a public defender, and to remain silent. I also give up my right to be present at the trial and to cross-examine any witnesses.

I also understand that if I plead guilty or the judge finds me guilty for an offense, other than parking, a record of the conviction may be sent to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission and, if my license was not issued by New Jersey, to the motor vehicle agency of the state that issued my driver's license.

I understand that the judgment of the court will be sent to me by ordinary mail at the above address and that if I plead guilty or am found guilty, I must pay all fines, penalties and costs imposed by the court. If I plead not guilty and I am found guilty or if I disagree with the sentence, I may appeal my case or I may appeal the sentence within 20 days of the date of the decision or sentence. Information on how to appeal the municipal court's decision may be obtained from the municipal court or the Judiciary's website at www.njcourtsonline.com.

If I plead "Not Guilty," the judge will hear the testimony of the complaining witness or other witnesses, review the facts I present below in my defense, and decide the case based on the testimony and facts presented.

If I plead "Guilty," the judge will consider the facts I present below to explain what happened before imposing any penalty against me.
Before determining the penalty, the judge may consider comments from the complaining witness, other witnesses or from the prosecutor.
