By a plea of guilty, you admit that the act is prohibited by law and that you committed the act charged.
Before Entering a Guilty Plea
Before entering your plea of guilty, you should understand the following:
The State has the burden of proving that you violated the law (the law does not require that you prove you did not violate the law).
You have the right to hear the State’s evidence and to require the State to prove you violated the law.
A plea of guilty may be used against you later in a civil suit if there was a traffic accident (another party can say you were at fault or responsible for the accident because you plead guilty to the traffic charge).
