(B)  Entry of Plea Without Admission of Guilt.  While the court may be required to establish that a factual basis exists for the entry of the plea, it is generally possible for a defendant to enter a plea without admitting, and even while continuing to deny, factual guilt.  See § 8.59, infra.


                The factual basis can still be stated by the prosecution, without the defense agreeing or admitting that it is true.  See § 16.33, infra.
