My friend, who lives in Arizona, has a son in some trouble. He has pleaded no contest to identity theft and bank fraud charges. He has signed away his rights. He or his mother are not quite sure what that means exactly.

It is a type of plea that essentially acknowledges what the state's evidence would be and that it is sufficient for conviction. Usually its done in cases where one has no memory on an incident due to intoxication. To give you more info, I'd need more detail. You are welcome to contact me if you'd like.
