An Alford plea allows a defendant in a criminal case to enter a plea that asserts the defendant’s innocence but acknowledges that there is sufficient evident for the court to find the defendant guilty. Upon entering an Alford plea, the defendant can be sentenced as if he/she was found guilty of a crime. The Alford plea is the equivalent of entering a guilty plea and it originated in the United States Supreme court case, North Carolina v. Alford.
