If you have been convicted of two or more traffic offenses within the preceding 12 months, do not sign this plea of guilty. A false statement will subject you to penalties prescribed by law.

PLEA OF GUILTY/WAIVER OF RIGHTS YOU ARE HEREBY ADVISED OF YOUR RIGHTS AS A DEFENDANT IN THIS TRAFFIC CASE. Please Read Carefully I, the undersigned, do hereby enter my appearance on the offense charges within this complaint. I understand that I have certain constitutional rights which I will waive if I plead guilty, namely: the right to a trial before this court; the right to an attorney of my choice, or if I cannot afford one, one appointed by the court (however, I understand that I may be ordered to make reimbursement at a later date); the right at trial to subpoena witnesses on my behalf, to confront and cross-examine witnesses against me and to argue and make objections; and the right to testify in my own behalf. I also understand that I cannot be forced to testify against myself and that I am presumed innocent and that this presumption can be overcome only if the prosecution convinces the judge or jury of my guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. I understand my constitutional rights set out above and the punishment that will be imposed if I elect to plead guilty before a magistrate. I also understand that my plea of guilty will have the same force and effect as a judgment of conviction by the court and that a record of this conviction will be sent to the driver license division of the Alabama Department of Public Safety (or of the state where I received my license to drive). This may result in the suspension or revocation of my driver’s license and may adversely affect my ability to maintain and secure automobile insurance. I further understand that this conviction may result in enhanced penalties on subsequent convictions. I understand my rights and the matters set out above and hereby voluntarily and knowingly waive such rights by pleading guilty as evidenced by my signature below. I further state under penalty of law (Section 13A-10-109, Code of Alabama 1975), that I have not been convicted of two or more traffic violations during the preceding twelve months. __________________________________________________ Defendant’s Signature Date __________________________________________________ Defendant’s Name (Print or Type) Date American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkflow.com
