PLEA TYPES AND CONSEQUENCES:
A. GUILTY – In this case you admit to the violation as charged. After this, the Magistrate usually inquires into circumstances, gives you an opportunity to make a statement or ask questions, and then pronounces sentence.
B. NOT GUILTY – This claims that you did not violate the law as charged or that there is something incorrect about the charge. The Magistrate then sets a date for trial. First the complaining witness presents his evidence. You have the right to cross- examine any witness who testifies against you.
After presentation of all the evidence against you, and also any cross – examination, you may ask the Magistrate to dismiss the case if you think the charge has not been proved beyond reasonable doubt. If the case is not dismissed, you may then present your case. You may use the Court facilities to require any witness to be present on your behalf. You may, but cannot be forced to give testimony yourself. If you do, you may be cross – examined. At the close of the arguments, a finding or sentence is made. If you are found guilty, implications and remaining procedures are the same as in the case of a guilty plea.
C. NO CONTEST – In this case you make no admission to guilt but also no claim of innocence. You may make a statement, but may not present any evidence. If you are found guilty, no legal inference may be drawn from that finding in any subsequent action based on the same incident (such as a civil suit asking payment for damages). With this exception, the implication and remaining procedures are the same as in the case of a guilty plea.
