Non Vult Contendere

[Latin, He does not wish to contest it.] A type of plea that can be entered by a defendant who is unwilling to admit guilt but is willing to submit to the court for sentencing.

The term, sometimes abbreviated non vult, is a variation of nolo contendere, which has the same meaning.
