    Aflred Plea: A plea in which the defendant agrees to enter a specific plea as being in his or her best interests because the prosecution might well be able to convict the defendant and the sentence could then be more severe, but under an Alfred Plea (also called a "best interests plea") the defendant never admits guilt and may in fact continue to proclaim his or her innocence

    guilty: having been convicted of a crime or having admitted the commission of a crime by pleading "guilty" (saying you did it). A defendant may also be found guilty by a judge after a plea of "no contest," or in Latin nolo contendere. The term "guilty" is also sometimes applied to persons against whom a judgment has been found in a lawsuit for a civil wrong, such as negligence or some intentional act like assault or fraud, but that is a confusing misuse of the word since it should only apply to a criminal charge.

    TOP 10 Types of "Alfred" pleas:

    NUMBER 10: Alfred keeps referring to Batman as "Lactose-Intolerant-Man".

    NUMBER 9: Alfred keeps calling Robin "One fruity lookin' B-A-S-T-A-R-D".

    NUMBER 8: Had next-door neighbor's butler whacked because he thought he was working on the side for Batman.

    NUMBER 7: Batman loosens the Ol' Utility Belt.

    NUMBER 6: Shines Bat Signal into night sky; when Batman shows up, Alfred hands the sum'bitch a mop.

    NUMBER 5: Before taking the Alfred Plea, you turn to your attorney and ask, "If I take it, will I meet Batman?"

    NUMBER 4: After taking the Alfred Plea, and as the bailiff escorts you to lockup, you keep yelling "Where's Batman?"

    NUMBER 3: The Batcave is closed due to a drunken Alfred driving the BatMobile.

    NUMBER 2: Alfred discovers Batmobile clearly a Geo Metro with cardboard fins.

    AND NOW, the NUMBER ONE Type of "Alfred" plea:

    Wait till statute of limitations runs out, admit everything!

    In the short time I have been researching the "ALFORD/ALFRED PLEA", the overall number of misspellings or mistypings has a direct relationship to the number of occurances in judges' opinions, court records and attorney fillings.
    An typical individual prior to becoming a "criminal" would have minimal occasion to encounter the term and a correct spelling. Your statement could imply that stupidity is handed down with the sentence or that fear of limiting a career prevents the pointing out a BAR member's error.

    Sister Mary Pius said bad spelling is not a sin against God, but rather a crime against man. I now have a greater appreciation for her words.

    Bible thumpers get into a "ZONE", and no one can be fully prepared for when they will strike.

    There really should be some type of alert system.
