A Manning man charged in October 2013 with second-degree burglary and unlawful neglect of a child after a home invasion has pleaded guilty to the former. Terence Levonne Hilton, 32, of 1116 Westwood Drive in Manning, pleaded guilty Jan. 21 to second-degree burglary before At-large Circuit Court Judge W. Jeffrey Young.
Young sentenced Hilton to 10 years in prison, suspended to two years in prison and three years’ probation to follow after his release.
The Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office arrested Hilton and two co-defendants on Sept. 23, 2013, after a 33-year-old woman living in the 3500 block of Alcolu Street in Alcolu called dispatch about a break-in in progress at her home.
Hilton was arrested Sept. 23 by the Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office after fleeing a home in the 3500 block of Alcolu Street after its owner called 911. Deputies later located Hilton hiding in a ditch near Boston Wells Road with his 3-year-old daughter.
One co-defendant, Travis Marquil Demetric Calvin, has also pleaded in the case. Calvin, 22, of 5767 Brogdon Road in Alcolu, was sentenced to five years in prison, suspended to time-served and three years’ probation after pleading guilty to second-degree burglary on Nov. 20, 2013.
Gene Davon Calvin Jr., 22, of 16A Dixie Drive in Sumter, remains at the Clarendon County Detention Center without bond on a charge of second-degree burglary.
