It is very difficult to answer your question without knowing the facts. A no contest plea has the same effect as a guilty plea. However, a no contest plea is not admitting guilt. Basically what you are saying is I do not want to contest it. You will be adjudicated guilty but you have not admitted guilt. If there is a possibility of civil liability (i.e. if there was an accident), a no contest plea would be appropriate. This is for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon or construed as legal advice. I would recommend contacting an attorney.
