Negotiated Plea & Appeal: If the punishment assessed does not exceed the punishment recommended by the prosecutor and agreed to by you and your attorney, you must receive the Court's permission before you may appeal any matter except matters raised by written motion(s) filed prior to trial.

Citizenship If you are not a citizen of the United States, whether or not you have lawful immigration status, you should tell your lawyer because you have the right to receive advice from your lawyer about the specific effect, if any, that this case may have on your immigration status. A plea of guilt or no contest, admission of guilt, or conviction may result in detention, removal, deportation, exclusion from the United States, (a determination that you are inadmissible to the U.S.) or denial of naturalization or other immigration benefits pursuant to federal law, depending on the specific facts and circumstances of your case. Your lawyer must investigate and advise you about these issues before you plead no contest or guilty, or admit guilt to this or any offense. If your attorney has not advised you with regard to your immigration consequences to your satisfaction, the court will allow you and your lawyer additional time to consider the appropriateness of the plea in light of this admonishment. You should tell your lawyer if you need more time. 7. Deferred Adjudication: If the Court grants you deferred adjudication community supervision, you may be arrested and detained if you violate any condition imposed on you. You will then be entitled to a hearing without a jury limited to the determination by the Court of whether to proceed with an adjudication of guilt on the original charge. After adjudication of guilt, all proceedings, including assessment of punishment, pronouncement of sentence, granting of community supervision and your right to appeal continue as if adjudication of guilt had not been deferred. Upon adjudication of your guilt, the Court may assess your punishment at any length of time and any fine within the range of punishment. 8. Sexual Offender Registration Requirements: If you receive community supervision or jail term for a Second Violation of Section 21.08 of the Penal Code: Indecent Exposure, as described in Chapter 62(5)(F) of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure (sex related offenses), you must meet all the registration requirements set out in that chapter. Failure to properly register is a separate criminal offense. By affixing your signatures to this document, you and your attorney are acknowledging that your attorney has advised you about and you are aware of any applicable registration requirements under Chapter 62. 9.

The judge may also amend or modify the conditions of supervision at any time during the period of supervision. 11.
