You CANNOT "Plead Innocent"

Grrrrrrrrrrr. I knew this was going to end up here sooner or later. Could someone (ANYONE) please inform that it is impossible to "plead innocent". As far as I know (and PLEASE someone correct me if I am wrong, b/c being wrong on this w/ 3 yrs of law school could be very embarrassing) no where in the U.S. can you "plead innocent". You can plead "guilty" or "not guilty", end of story. In some instances you can plead "no contest" and in some smaller jurisdictions you can even plead "guilty w/ an explanation" but "innocent" is not an option - ever - at all. CNN are you paying attention?!

OK, had to get that off my chest. You may all resume your day now. :)
