State v. Cleary Even though G.S. § 15A-1023(b) requires that a trial court grant a defendant a continuance if the court rejects a guilty or no contest plea agreement, at a probation revocation hearing, a probationer does not plead guilty or no contest; instead, he “admits” or “denies” the allegations of a probation violation report. Probation revocation proceedings are inherently different from criminal proceedings; we hold that G.S. § 15A-1023(b) does not apply to probation revocation proceedings.
