The judgment of guilt of contempt shall include a recital of those facts upon which the adjudication of guilt is based.
Prior to the adjudication of guilt the judge shall inform the defendant of the accusation against him and inquire as to whether he has any cause to show why he should not be adjudged guilty of contempt by the Court and sentenced therefor.
