A petitioner is charged with the “criminal responsibility” for a felony offense; however, they were never told about this responsibility in any previous court hearing. Rule 30 (a) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure states that before accepting a guilty plea at trial or giving questions to potential jurors, the court must advise the defendant about their rights. Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure further explains that at the first court appearance, the judge should also inform defendants if they have been accused or charged with a crime that may result in imprisonment for more than one year, and their rights to counsel, to remain silent, etc., if chosen not to speak with an attorney present.
