RULE 7.2 SENTENCING (a) Generally. The court shall state the precise terms of the sentence and shall assure that the record accurately reflects all time spent in custody in connection with the offense or behavioral incident for which sentence is imposed. Pending such action the court may release or commit the defendant, pursuant to rule 3.2. (b) Procedure at Time of Sentencing. The court shall, immediately after sentencing, advise the defendant: (1) of the right to appeal the conviction; (2) of the right to appeal a sentence outside the standard sentence range; (3) that unless a notice of appeal is filed within 30 days after the entry of the judgment or order appealed from, the right to appeal is irrevocably waived; (4) that the superior court clerk will, if requested by the defendant appearing without counsel, supply a notice of appeal form and file it upon completion by the defendant; (5) of the right, if unable to pay the costs thereof, to have counsel appointed and portions of the trial record necessary for review of assigned errors transcribed at public expense for an appeal; and (6) of the time limits on the right to collateral attack imposed by RCW 10.73.090 and .100. These proceedings shall be made a part of the record. (c) Record. A verbatim record of the sentencing proceedings shall be made. (d) Judgment and Sentence. For every felony sentencing, the clerk of the court shall forward a copy of the uniform judgment and sentence to the Sentencing Guidelines Commission. The uniform judgment and sentence shall be a form prescribed by the Administrator for the Courts in conjunction with the Supreme Court Pattern Forms Committee. If the sentence imposed departs from the applicable standard sentence range, the court's written findings of fact and conclusions of law shall also be supplied to the Commission. Comment The prior rule, CrR 7.1, is adopted as CrR 7.2. In section (a), the added language is suggested by Minn. R. Crim. P. 27.03. The deleted language addressed matters that are now covered in more detail in RCW 9.94A.110. Section (b) is the same as the corresponding section in the prior rule, except that subsections (1) and (2) are modified to reflect the provisions of RCW 9.94A.210. Section (c), concerning the withdrawal of a guilty plea, is deleted. In the existing rules, the point is covered in both CrR 4.2 and CrR 7.1. (See rule 4.2.) The language of the two provisions differs, but they appear to be the same in substance. There is no apparent distinction between the two provisions in the cases that have interpreted them. No loss of substance occurs when the provision in CrR 7.1 is deleted, leaving the point governed by CrR 4.2. Section (c) is suggested by Minn. R. Crim. P. 27.03. Section (d) is suggested by Minn. R. Crim. P. 27.03.
