    WILKINS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A man accused of endangering the welfare of children by leaving them alone at a hotel was in court on Monday.

    Glenn Wheaton was held for court on all charges.  Wheaton's attorney argued his client is guilty of only poor judgment.

    “It’s a huge misunderstanding,” said defense attorney Victor Vouga.

    Five children, ages 13 and under, were found unattended in a Comfort Inn hotel room in Wilkins Township, police said.  According to police, Wheaton returned to his room drunk.

    Wheaton is free on bond.
