Hylton Expected to Change Plea 

One of two men charged in a home invasion and machete attack in Pittston was in court Tuesday.19-year-old Leo Hylton was expected to change his plea to not guilty, but the judge postponed considering the request.Hylton is charged in the attack on former lawmaker William Guerrette and his daughter last year.In May, Hylton pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted murder and one count each of robbery and burglary.Two months ago, Hylton requested a new lawyer, which the court approved.Today, his new attorney argued that when Hylton entered the guilty plea, he did not “truly understand the charges or his rights.”Guerrette says the delay is frustrating.The defense presented evidence involving conversations between Hylton and his former attorney but, concerned with confidentiality issues, justice Nancy Mills postponed the proceedings.
