The date was set when the case was again mentioned in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today.
Hylton is accused of failing to submit information on his assets to the Integrity Commission.
Hylton, who is also the Minister of Industry Investment and Commerce, has pleaded not guilty.
The attorney-at-law is among several parliamentarians, who were hauled before the courts last November for breaching the Parliament (Integrity of Members) Act.
The others pleaded guilty and were fined.
Each Parliamentarian is required to furnish statutory declarations to the Commission under the Act.
For years, the Integrity Commission has been wrestling with delinquent Parliamentarians who have failed to submit declarations or documents to substantiate their claims.
