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.
