Before you plea-bargain or enter a plea of not guilty…think about this…
If you are truly not guilty what are you pleading for? If you honestly and truly not guilty than don’t “plea” not guilty….. Challenge the accusation that is being applied to you. If you “plead” your are asking for acceptance to not guilty rather then STATING you are not guilty.
If you are not guilty say you’re not guilty and they have to prove otherwise. Don’t beg or “plead” to the court that you’re not guilty tell them that you’re not guilty.
It’s like that saying “I’m not even to justify that with an answer”
If the charge or allegation is ridiculous you’re not going to justify it with an answer, because that would show you are defending it. If you’re not guilty challenge the allegation don’t defend an allegation that is not true. Don’t try to defend a position that doesn’t require a defense, reverse it and challenge the question is being applied.
In simple terms let me ask you this…….
If you are not guilty would you rather PLEAD not guilty, or SAY you’re not guilty?
If it ever comes up in the future would you rather say that you plead not guilty, or you told them that you were not guilty?
One last thing. If you are not guilty wouldn’t you want the court to a knowledge that you were not guilty rather then it “accepting” a not guilty plea?
PERSONALLY I WOULD WANT WHOEVER TO AKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WERE WRONG AND I WAS NOT GUILTY, RATHER THAN A QUESTIONABLE PLEA.
BUT, HEY,,,, WHAT DO I KNOW???? I DIDN’T GO TO LAW SCHOOL LOL
