Hello I recently accepted probation. I wanted to ask is it unconstitutional in Texas for me to be given a contract where I give up my right to a trial by jury when I accept probation?
I’m assuming “contract” means the plea paperwork and the portion of it that says, in legalese and this is obviously not verbatim, “You know you have the right to a jury trial, you know you have the right to a jury trial, you know you have the right to a jury trial…”
So, to answer the question, “No. It’s not.” Without the contract(admonishments)? Maybe. But with the contract? I doubt it.
