Can I Waive My Right To A Jury Trial If It Is In My Best Interests To Do So?

A. Except for crimes punishable by death, you may knowingly and intelligently waive a trial by jury and be tried by the judge. The waiver must be in a written motion, signed by you and your attorney, unless you have waived your right to an attorney, and must be filed not less than 45 days prior to the date the case is set for trial. With the consent of the district attorney, you may waive a trial by jury within 45 days to prior to the commencement of trial.
