What are the pleas and what do they mean?
“Guilty” simply means you are admitting guilt to the charge.

“No Contest” means that while you admit some of the facts could lead toward your guilt, you would like a chance to explain the circumstances.

“Not Guilty” means that you feel you were not guilty of the charge and you would like a trial so the Magistrate can hear from all parties involved and make a decision based on the testimony.
