  3. But this may apply:
    http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/what-happens-defendant-refuses-enter-plea.html
    "But defendants who face charges have to plead at least once, in the early stages. (Most cases involve at least two pleas: the initial not-guilty plea, then a plea of guilty or no contest pursuant to a plea deal.)"
