Paz-Salvador Asks To Withdraw Guilty Plea

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) - The man who pleaded guilty in the death of bicyclist and Lexington attorney Mark Hinkel asked to withdraw that guilty plea Friday. 

Odilon Paz-Salvador was originally charged with murder, DUI, wanton endangerment and fleeing after the crash that killed Hinkel, who was on the last mile of a 100-mile ride in May of 2015 when he was struck and killed. Police say Paz Salvador lost control and hit Hinkel head on.

Police reportedly found beer inside the vehicle and they say Paz-Salvador also confessed to smoking marijuana. It was his fourth DUI related charge.

LEX 18 found that Paz-Salvador was charged with DUI back in July 2010, when Georgetown Police said he had a blood alcohol level of 0.3, nearly four times the legal limit. Court records show that charge was amended to alcohol intoxication because Paz-Salvador "could not be proven to be the driver of the car."

In April 2011, Paz-Salvador was again pulled over in Scott County. That time, investigators said he had a blood alcohol level of 0.184. He pleaded guilty to DUI in that case.

Paz-Salvador also pleaded guilty to a DUI from June 2013 when Lexington Police pulled him over on New Circle Road.

There was no record of a driver's license under Paz-Salvador's name.

He's scheduled to be back in court on November 17.
