Danbury man enters guilty plea on assault charges

A guilty plea has been entered by a Danbury man accused of beating two people in Wilton with an aluminum bat.  47-year old Leslie Philibert was in court yesterday on two counts of assault.  According to court records, if he pays a 10-thousand dollar fine by his next court date, of May 31st, and avoids further arrests he will not serve any jail time.  If neither happens, he could face up to 10 years in prison.  Philibert was arrested in February of 2020 by Wilton Police after an early morning altercation with two people in a Danbury Road parking lot.  All three were hospitalized.  Police said at the time that the two others were renting the lot and noticed someone repeatedly taking firewood from their inventory.  Breach of peace charges against the couple were later dropped.
