Did Guy Fawkes plead guilty?
dont know but as he was caught red handed it is a moot point
Fawkes did indeed plead not guilty. His reasoning was ignorance of certain aspects of his indictment. But he was still found guilty and sentenced to death.

The authorities were given a letter by an anonymous person who told them about the plot and caught Guy Fawkes. Guy died on 31st January 1606 by hanging. (MORE)
NO! STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND ADMIT IT, STATE THE FACT THAT A VICTIMLESS CRIME SHOULD NOT BE PUNISHABLE, AND SPEAK OUT AGAINST TYRANNICAL AND UNJUST LAWS! The above advice is awesome! It totally ignores the fact that at a lower court no one is going to pay attention to what happens, and if yo…u plead guilty, it is unlikely you will get to "speak out" on these legally irrelevant issues. Although you will pay attention to what happens, because there will be a penalty in it for you... If you want to run your own life, instead of being a martyr for "Mr ALL CAPS'" cause, for me it would really come down to a few questions: What were the circumstances (e.g. potential illegal search or anything)? What are the penalties for the offence in your country? What would the effect of a conviction be on you? Does diversion operate (for this offence) in your country? Do your country's courts give lower penalties for an early guilty plea? (most likely yes) The best solution for you would be to consult a lawyer. Always consult or hire an attorney. If one was not in possession of a drug,nor was aware of the drug that the other person had on them,then yes plead not guilty. No one should have to pay those penalties if one is truly innocent.

Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament by sneaking in lots of gunpowder That's how you put it basically. Guy Fawkes wanted to practise Roman Catholic procedures but wasn't allowed under King James VI rule. So to try and "teach them a lesson" he decided, along with others, to blow up a…ll the government officials, King James and his family. All of these people would be in the House of Parliament on the 5th of November for the legislature ( to change the laws that need to be changed) and they thought that day would be perfect. They piled ten tons of gunpowder into the cellar of the House Of Parliament. Unfortunately, they had sent an anonymous letter to a old friend, Lord Monteagle, telling him to stay away from the House of Parliament on the 5th of November. Lord Monteagle became suspicious and handed the note to the police. They decided to do a full search of the building and in the early morning of the 5th of November, they discovered all the gunpowder. So they didn't alert the conspirators, they left all the gunpowder there and waited for a conspirator to go down there so then they could find out who was behind it and what they were planning to do. Guy Fawkes was the caught as he was about to light the gunpowder. they arrested him and discovered nearly all the other conspirators. Only one man escaped and was never found. Those that were found were held until 31st January 1606 when they were put on trial and charged with treason, punishable by being hung, drawn and quartered. Meaning that they were hung until the were dead then they pulled out their entrails before slicing their bodies into quarters often to be sent to the four corners of the land as examples with the head displayed locally. Guy Fawkes day is now celebrated every year on the 5th of November by many fireworks being lit. It is mainly only celebrated in British countries or countries recently become independent from Britain for example Australia and New Zealand. He is a man who tried to blow up parliament in 1605 on the 5th of November, he almost succeeded but the morning he was going to do it he was caught. He was hung early the next year. Guy Forks day is celebrated in different parts of the world on the 5th of November every year. The film 'V for Vendetta' is based on this. Good film! (MORE)
COCAINE. ALso, he and a group of friends tried to blow up the UK Houses of Parliament in 1605 but he got caught and that is why we have bonfire night and burn a guy on the bonfire!
Homer Plessy, the Petitioner in the landmark US Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson, (1896), was arrested on June 7, 1892 for refusing to remove himself from a "whites only" train car on the East Louisiana Railroad, in violation of Louisiana's Separate Car Act of 1890. Act 111 required passenger…s to be separated by race and Plessy, who appeared white, was one-eighth African-American. When the conductor asked Plessy to declare his race, Plessy responded that he was "colored." He was promptly arrested and taken to jail in New Orleans, Orleans Parish. Plessy was held at the jail overnight, then processed and released on bail June 8, 1892, after waiving his right to see a judge. On October 28, 1892, Homer Plessy and his attorney, John C. Walker, appeared before Judge John Ferguson in the Criminal District Court for Orleans Parish. Plessy refused to enter a plea, arguing instead that the Separate Car Act was null and void because it violated his constitutional rights under the 13th and 14th Amendments. He was found guilty without entering a plea. Plessy's attorney then appealed and filed for a writ of prohibition (an order from a higher court to a lower court preventing the court from exercising its jurisdiction) in the Criminal Court of Appeals, then in the Louisiana Supreme Court, and finally in the Supreme Court of the United States. According to a New Orleans arrest warrant, Homer Plessy didn't enter a "guilty" plea until January 11, 1897 , more than six months after his case had been decided by the US Supreme Court. Plessy paid a $25 fine, but was not jailed. (MORE)
One of the Catholic gang who intended to blow up the (mainly Protestant) House of Lords sent a letter to a Catholic Peer to warn him. He became suspicious and a search of the cellars was carried out. The gunpowder was discovered and Guy Fawkes captured when he came to explode it.
If you have been arrested by the police because they think you have committed a crime, the next thing that happens is that you are brought to court for trial. When you come into court the charges against you are read out and you are given the opportunity to say that either you did not do the thing…s you are accused of (a plea of not guilty) or that you agree that you did what you are accused of (a plea of guilty). If you plead guilty then there is no trial and the court will decide the punishment you deserve immediately. If you plead not guilt, a trial will be held and a jury will be appointed to hear both sides of the argument and decide if they think you are or are not guilty. If they decide you are guilty you will be punished. (MORE)
Usually, a guilty plea from a defendant is entered as a result of a deal that is reached between the defense and the prosecution. In many cases, plea agreements like this offer the defendant a lesser sentence if they enter a gulity plea voluntarily. For the most part, prosecutors will insist that th…e defendant stand before the court and elocute to the crime. If the defendant refuses, this would most likely invalidate the plea agreement. In cases where no plea bargain is in play, the defendant cannot be forced to say anything at all. They can stand on the 5th amendment and exercise their right to remain silent until the cows come home. (MORE)
Innocent people plead guilty for a variety of reasons. They may believe that they will be convicted at trial, they may want to end the proceedings without waiting for trial, they may want to protect the guilty party, they may feel guilt about the incident even if they weren't at fault, or any number… of other reasons.

Many people believe that Guy Fawkes was guilty but there is evidence to suggest that he was framed by the King's Advisor, Robert Cecil.
You can plead not guilty if you want to but if you do not produce something saying that you had the vehicle inspected prior to the ticket being issued then you are wasting your and the courts time. Either you were in compliance or you were not. Right or wrong. Guilty or innocent. Only you know for s…ure. You and God. (MORE)
that may give rise to MANY questions and it is most likely that they would not believe you (unless you have a terrible mental disorder)...Anyway the chances of that succeeding is 10%
This depends on the laws of the state issuing the ticket and the offense. Assuming this is a moving violation, there is usually a box on the ticket maked "Court Appearance Required" or something similar to indicate that you cannot simply mail in the fine like with a parking ticket. If you hire a law…yer, generally, he/she will write to the court, enter a not guilty plea for you, request discovery and ask for an adjournment of the first court date. The court date will most likely be adjourned since the court sees that there is a lawyer and it is now a contested case. If you don't hire a lawyer, you probably have to go to court and verbally enter a not guilty plea. If you plead not guilty, the court will give you a new date for the trial. (MORE)
He attempted to blow up the houses of parliament with a massive amount of gunpowder hidden in the cellars. He was caught just as he was about to light the fuse. He was a catholic, and was trying to assassinate the king - who was a protestant.
I think Guy Fawkes was innocent because: King James had a friend (Robert Ceceil) who was his secretary to him and sometimes he would lend him the key to the tower where all the gun powder was stored. And it was locked all the time, so Guy Fawkes couldn't have got in because he was catholic and at th…is point no one liked Catholics because the king was protestant, also Ceceil hated catholic very much and wanted rid of them so this would be the perfect plan. As well people would notice if there were 36 massive barrels in the palace. (MORE)
Guy Fawkes was apart of the Gunpowder Plot (the plot to kill King James I), but the plot failed, so he did not kill the king.
as we have researched guy Fawkes didnt actually do anything all he did was sit in the grand opening with a load of gunpowder but really he was passing the grand opening whe he was found guilty.
Yes, a child should, and telling the truth gets you in less trouble than lying and then others find out the truth. Lying gets you in bigger trouble.
Remember remember the 5th of November, the gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot. Guy Fawkes was guilty of treason for his plan to blow up the English Parliament building.
You can dispute the ticket in court. The judge will then decide to dismiss the ticket or if the ticket remains.
because in in tudor times that name was very popular Guy comes from the French language and it was obviously favoured by his parents. Fawkes is an old surname which is spelt quite a few ways, such as Folkes
Yes, you should be able to. To request an expungement: You must first have served the complete term of your sentence - then submit a petition to the court setting forth good reason(s) why your request should be granted. A judge will review your petition and the circumstances of your case and issue a… ruling either granting or denying the request. AN EXPUNGEMENT IS NOT A PARDON! Expungement only removes the record of your offense from being viewed by the public. Law enforcement, the courts, and government agencies will always have access to your complete 'actual' record.

This is an unanswerable question. There is absolutely no way to know in advance how a sentencing judge will choose to handle the disposition and sentencing of a case.
Pleading guilty can be the higher of two roads. The judge and the ADA will generally be more lenient in sentencing and you will have cooperated with the courts.
He was found to be the person trying to blow Parliament up, but whether he was guilty or not, we don't know.
If you wish to change your plea to guilty, you may do so at ANY time.
Although I'm not a lawyer here's basically how sealing and expungment works:. You can only expunge your record if the state attorney/district attorney/prosecutor, whatever they call them in your state, dropped the charges. In this example, the defendant would enter into a pre-trial diversion progra…m and at the end of it, the charges would be dropped if they successfully completed the program.. The other option is sealing your record. Sealed records are unavailable for viewing unless by subpoena from a judge. You don't have to report sealed records to employers. (MORE)
How soon after you orignally pled before you decided to change you rmind? You can file a motion/petition for a change of plea, or a re-hearing, giving your reason(s) for wanting to do so. The judge will consider your motion reason and grant the hearing or deny it.
Up to a certain point, yes. It is not helpful to your defense, though, but if you can successfully defend yourself then it is worth the time.
A preliminary hearing is to decide if there's enough evidence for the case to go to trial. This is a crucial stage in a criminal case. The judge decides with the evidence presented if a crime has been committed and if there's enough evidence against the defendant.. Added; Of course, if you choose t…o, you can plead guilty, or enter an Alford Plea at any point in the judicial process. (MORE)
Its all very simple. First off Guy Fawkes was a Catholic and he hated protestant England. He also did not regret the attempted murder of the king, this shows he has not been hired by anyone. The night of November the fourth he was caught with Barrels of gunpowder and that is why i think he is guilty…. (MORE)
Most British people know that the Gunpowder Plot was simply to get rid of the Protestant king (who disliked Catholics). James I was simply another Protestant monarch to get rid of. Guy Fawkes was smuggled back to Britain from Spain to help with the plot, since he was...um...an explosives expert. Mos…t historians believe, though, that the plotters were encouraged by spies and the plot was all a trick. (MORE)
Pleading "not guilty" only means the case will still go to trial and the Prosecutor must prove the case.
Guy Fawkes was a man born on 13th April 1570 in York who died in January 1606. He was the most famous plotter of the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, a plan to blow up King James I of England. He was caught attempting to light a fuse underneath the House of Lords and then tortured for information. On 31st Janua…ry, 1606, he and his co-conspirators were due to be executed, on which day Guy Fawkes commited suicide. Bonfire Night (November 5th) was a public holiday until the late 1800s. One popular tradition is burning effigies or 'guys' on a - surprise, surprise - bonfire. The word 'guy' first entered the English language with this meaning, but then went on to mean any male person. And all because of Guy. (MORE)
You have committed Perjury and also Obstruction of Justice, and you now have a criminal record. I understand that now you may not want to take the rap for someone else, but you had better be able to come up with some pretty good evidence, or proof, that the other person is the ACTUAL offender. A…fter all, the authorities must have had SOME evidence that implicated you in the first place, or YOU wouldn't have been charged. My best advice would be to retain an attorney to handle your problem because you are in pretty deep, and even if you are able to reverse your false guilty plea, it is quite likely that you will wind up with some other charge(s) against you anyway.

Well, usually after you plead guilty for just a misdemeanor you get your sentence and that's the end of it, i was in that situation and they just sent me to jail then put me on probation, only one court herring.
Not enough information is given in order to answer. If it was a first offense and the injuries (if any) were slight you COULD receive probation or a sentence of community service -OR- if you have a record and/or a tough judge you could receive jail time up to a year.
Because you are not guilty of the charge. Another reason is that you are guilty but you don't believe the government can prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt and you want to take the case to trial and perhaps get a not guilty verdict. Still another reason is that you are guilty but you want to de…lay the day of reckoning as long as possible so as to try to work out a plea bargain. (MORE)
This is usually referred to as a plea bargain. You are offered the chance to either go to trial on the original (usually more severe) charge against you, or plead guilty to a lesser offense (with a lesser penalty) without having to go to trial.
It depends on the crime and the motivation. Pleading guilty does not mean a custodial sentence. There may be a fine, community service, mental evaluation, or just a plain old warning not to do it again.
If you want to pay it and move on, plead guilty. If you want to have a trial, plead not guilty... However be warned,that in almost 97% of the trials for seat belt violations you will be found guilty... The 3% of those found not guilty,are due to other reasons such as the officer not being able to ap…pear in court and testify against you(most common)... People who are so severely over weight that the seat belt is not long enough to connect across them,People who have a medical exzemption by a licensed doctor stating that the use of seat-belt will impede their ability to drive(rare).

yes you can but it can take a while because it has to go through court
Yes, if you did it, it helps to plead guilty right away saves you money and other penatlies. The sooner you plead guilty the sooner you will be able to further your life and get on the right track. Yea, plead guilty.IF YOU'RE AN IDIOT I don't know who "tkh" is who wrote the original answer but no… doubt he's either a religious nut, an idiot who is trying to get YOU convicted or just trying to get you put in prison. You DO NOT plead guilty to any thing until you talk to an attorney and that attorney arranges the plea for you. Whatever you do, DO NOT go in there to the police station and start screamin' "I'M GUILTY!" at the top of your lungs or they will have you convicted of the robbery, any other robberies in your neighborhood, possibly some robberies OUTSIDE of your neighborhood and the Kennedy assassination too. DO NOT plead guilty without an attorney! ans3 . If you committed the theft, then seriously consider pleading guilty, but after receiving advice from an attorney. Making early restitution is also a good idea. Another View: As with the answers to many question like this in this category - IT ALL DEPENDS on information that the answerer has no knowledge of. What kind of theft? Did you shoplift a candy bar or embezzle a bank? What is your past criminal history, if any? Was there a long criminal investigation in order to identify you as the suspect, or did you turn yourself in? Etc. There are so many variables that without much more specific information it is virtually impossible to render an asnwer to your question. The only good consistent advice contained in this entire string of answers is the one that recommends that you consult with an attorney before making any decisions! (MORE)
In criminal court If you plead guilty to the charge you will then be quickly convicted of the crime and sentencing will be carried out. The Punishment for harassment (depending on the severity and the Laws of the state) can carry a prison sentence anywhere from 10 days to 3 years and/or fines from… $150.00 to $10,000.00 Harassment can also be brought up in a civil law suit in which if you plead guilty to the charge you could have a judgment passed against you for a monetary amount and have to pay the person whom you harassed...

Because he thinks he did nothing wrong and he doesn't want to go to jail.
If you have a lawyer on full-time retainer, and you can afford the time to go to court, and pay any assessed court costs (never mind the violation), you have a fair chance of winning the case. If you don't have a lawyer on retainer, you'll have to hire one. At the very least, that will cost you w…hat the fine would have been or more, plus any court costs. But then you would, again have a fair chance of winning your case. If you appear in court alone to "fight it", without a lawyer, the cop who wrote the citation is going to get the benefit of the doubt every time. Then you'll have to pay the fine and the court costs. (MORE)
No - you could still be convicted even if you plead not guilty. The conviction is as a result of the evidence.
Maybe. In most jurisdictions, it is up to the judge to decide if you pay any fees. You can ask the Clerk of Court what the normal procedure is for your area.
The court does not assume that you are necessarily guilty justbecause you plead guilty; there are many cases of innocent peoplewho plead guilty, usually because of some mental illness. Adelusional person may believe that he or she is guilty of somethingthat he or she did not actually do. So, the cas…e is stillinvestigated, the evidence is still examined, and the person whopleaded guilty might still be acquitted. However, a guilty pleadoes constitute some degree of evidence, and it may lead to aguilty verdict, even for a person who is actually innocent. Itdepends upon what other evidence is available, and upon the carewith which the court is handling the trial. It is unfortunately thecase that sometimes the police and the prosecutor are just happy toconvict someone, whether that person is guilty or not. It counts asa successful prosecution, that someone is found guilty. (MORE)
You need to inform your lawyer of the circumstances. There isreally no way to be certain that things will go the way that youenvision.
