Better Buy the Valley News: The D’s lead story today is on Robert Tulloch changing his insanity plea. The subheading of the article (on the web version at least) says that his “only options are ‘guilty’ or ‘no contest.'” The second paragraph of the article, however, insists that “Under New Hampshire law, the Vermont teenager’s only options are to plead “not guilty” or “no contest.” A former state prosecutor, John Kacavas, told reporters that a judge would be unlikely to accept a no-contest plea.”

So which is it? Are his options guilty and no-contest, or not guilty and no contest? If the judge probably wouldn’t even take a no contest plea, I’m thinking this may be an important point, especially to young Robert.
