ADVISEMENT OF RIGHTS
By choosing to pay and forfeit bail in installments and not go into court, you will be giving up these
rights:
To appear in court without deposit of bail for formal arraignment, plea, and sentencing;
To ask for community service (if available) instead of paying the total amount due;
To request and have a court trial, to challenge the charges without deposit of bail, unless the
court orders bail;
To have a speedy court trial and have the charges dismissed if a speedy trial is requested but
not provided;
To be represented by an attorney at your expense;
To subpoena or present witnesses and physical evidence using the power of the court at no
cost to you and to testify on your own behalf;
To confront and cross-examine all witnesses under oath testifying against you; and
To remain silent and not testify.
At any time before your final payment, if you have experienced a change in financial circumstances, you
may ask that the court consider your ability to pay. If the court considers your ability to pay, the court
may modify your installment plan, allow you to complete community service (if available) instead of
paying the total amount due, or suspend all or part of the fine. The court is not required to offer you any
of the above options, and the court may deny your request.
[If you do not make a payment, please contact the court as soon as possible to make arrangements.]
