Kentucky Driver Who Allegedly Hit And Killed Bicyclist Wants To Rescind Guilty Plea

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky driver accused of killing a man during a bicycling event wants to rescind his guilty plea.
    
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that on the day Odilon Paz-Salvador was scheduled to be sentenced to 35 years in prison, he told the judge through an interpreter that didn't think it was fair for him to plead guilty because "it wasn't intentional."
    
Georgetown police say then-29-year-old Paz-Salvador was driving drunk when he struck 57-year-old Lexington attorney Mark Hinkel in May 2015, flinging him into the bed of his pickup truck.
    
Paz-Salvador allegedly drove 3 miles (5 kilometers) after the collision.
    
Judge Paul Isaacs set a Nov. 17 hearing on the request to withdraw Paz-Salvador's guilty pleas to murder, wanton endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident which resulted in death.
