(a) Generally.

The court shall state the precise terms of the sentence, which shall include credit for all time spent in custody in connection with the offense.

(b) Procedure at Time of Sentencing.

The court shall, immediately after sentencing, advise the defendant: (1) of the right to appeal the conviction pursuant to the RALJ or CrRLJ 9.1; (2) that unless a notice of appeal is filed in the court of limited jurisdiction within 30 days after the entry of the judgment and sentence or order appealed from, the right to appeal is waived; (3) that the notice of appeal must be served on all other parties; (4) that the court clerk will, if requested by the defendant appearing without a lawyer, supply a notice of appeal form; (5) of the defendant's right to a lawyer on appeal, and, if unable to pay the costs thereof, to have a lawyer appointed and portions of the trial record necessary for review prepared 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. If this advisement follows a guilty plea, the court shall advise the defendant that the right to appeal is limited. These proceedings shall be made a part of the record.

(c) Sentence.

Before imposing sentence, the court shall afford the defendant, and the prosecuting authority, an opportunity to make a statement and to present information in extenuation, mitigation, or aggravation of punishment.

(d) Record. A record of the sentencing proceedings shall be made.

The sentencing and judgment records of the courts of limited jurisdiction shall be preserved in perpetuity, either in an electronic or hard copy format. "Hard copy format" may include microfilm, microfiche, or a paper copy. The record of the sentencing proceedings shall be prima facie evidence of a valid conviction in subsequent proceedings in courts of limited jurisdiction and in superior court.

(e) Judgment and Sentence.

(1) An electronic judgment and sentence shall be prescribed by the Administrator for the Courts in conjunction with the Judicial Information System Committee (JISC). (2) A non-electronic judgment and sentence form shall be prescribed by the Administrator for the Courts in conjunction with the Supreme Court Pattern Forms Committee. (3) Notwithstanding any other statute or rule to the contrary, each judgment and sentence form, either electronic or hard copy, shall be preserved by the court in perpetuity.
