    Default The court pleads you guilty

    Does it sound propper "The court pleads you guilty"? Or I should use another verb here? Like "The court finds you guilty". This phrase is supposed to be said by a judge to a defendant.

    Default Re: The court pleads you guilty

    A court does not plead. A person pleads their guilt or innocence. A court finds you guilty or innocent.
