Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

According to Nolo's website glossary, nolo contendere is explained by stating: "If a defendant pleads nolo contendere, she neither admits nor denies that she committed the crime, but agrees to a punishment (usually a fine or jail time) as if guilty. Usually, this type of plea is entered because it can't be used as an admission of guilt if a civil case is held after the criminal trial."
