(4) of the defendant's waiver of the right to a jury trial (if the offense is eligible);
(5) the defendant's waiver of the right to be represented by counsel at such a trial; and
(6) if the defendant is found guilty, the defendant has the right to appeal.
(b) Accepting the Submission. A court may accept an agreement to submit the case on a stipulated record only if it determines that the defendant has entered the agreement voluntarily and intelligently.
