Under such a plea, a defendant doesn’t admit guilt, and a conviction is withheld if the conditions of the plea are met.

Zimmerman fatally shot the black teenager in 2012 in the central Florida city of Sanford. Zimmerman, who identifies as Hispanic, was acquitted of all charges. … [Read more...] about George Zimmerman to enter no contest plea in stalking case
