Understanding the Nolo Plea
Within moments of arriving at your arraignment, the court expects you to make some pretty big decisions – including your type of plea. So it’s a good idea to be aware of the options available and how they can affect you. You can choose one of three plea options in criminal court: guilty, not guilty, or no contest (nolo).
It’s common to see drivers plead nolo after the court informs them it would keep points off their driving record. While it seems like a great alternative to pleading guilty – you should familiarize yourself with the full scope of a nolo plea before you decide if it’s right for you.
For example, you should know that pleading no contest does not keep your insurance rates from increasing. While you might not get new points on your record, the conviction is still visible to insurance companies. And you could still incur a spike in premium based on the type of offense.
You should also know that you can only use certain nolo pleas once in five years. And while it might not help your insurance rates, there are specific situations where pleading no contest can be valuable. For example, if law enforcement charges a person with driving on a suspended license, pleading nolo prevents a 6-month additional license suspension.
