A Plea of GUILTY means that you admit that the act is prohibited by law, that you committed the act charged, and that you have no legal defense for your act. You should understand the following: You are innocent until proven guilty. Your plea of guilty may be used against you later in a civil suit. (e.g., if there was a traffic accident another party can say you were at fault or responsible for the accident because you pled guilty to the traffic charge.
A Plea of NO CONTEST means that you do not contest the charge against you. You will almost certainly be found guilty, unless you are eligible and successfully complete a driving safety course and/or deferred disposition. Also, a plea of no contest cannot be used against you in a subsequent civil suit for damages.
A plea of NOT GUILTY. You must appear in Court on your court date and plead Not Guilty in front of the Prosecutor.
