What is a plea?
A plea is an answer to the charges against you. You must enter a plea of Guilty, No Contest or Not Guilty.
- A “Guilty” plea means that you admit that you committed the offense(s).
- A “No Contest” plea means that you do not want to contest the charges. You are not admitting guilty, but you are allowing the Judge to find you guilty.
- A “Not Guilty” plea means that your case will be set for trial and the City will be required to prove that you committed the offense(s) beyond a reasonable doubt.
