Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
If you plead guilty the court will find you guilty of all three infractions and impose whatever sanctions are permitted under the law.
If you plead not guilty, the prosecutor may agree to dismiss some of the charges in exchange for a plea of guilty.
If you plead no contest the court will almost always find you guilty and impose penalties similar to what you would get for a guilty plea.
Pleading no contest will prevent the finding of guilty being used later in a civil case. This is helpful if you were cited in an accident.
Is there a reason why you did not have license? And is it something you can easily correct or obtain?
