A continuance without a finding (CWOF) is not a guilty plea. It is, rather, an admission to facts sufficient to find the defendant guilty. Unlike with a conviction, it results in the entry of a dismissal once the CWOF period (typically one year with probation, though it can be longer or shorter) has ended by way of the defendant successfully completing his or her probation.
