Guillory sentenced to serve time in parish jail

An Evangeline Parish man appeared before 13th Judicial District Judge Chuck West to be sentenced after he entered a plea of guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia, flight from an officer, careless operation, driving under suspension and improper lane usage.
Stacy L. Guillory, who was represented by attorney Jacob Fusilier, was originally arrested and charged with possession of a schedule III controlled dangerous substance, possession of a firearm or carrying a concealed weapon, flight from an officer, careless operation without accident, driving under suspension and improper lane usage.
However, when he appeared in court on March 4, the State of Louisiana, represented by Assistant District Attorney Chris Ludeau, requested that the charge of possession of a schedule III CDS be amended to possession of drug paraphernalia.
The state opted to not prosecute Guillory for the charge of possession of a firearm or carrying of a concealed weapon by a person convicted of certain felonies. The reason, according to the District Attorney’s Office, is because credible information was received that the vehicle being operated by Guillory belonged to another individual, and that individual came forward to state the gun found in the vehicle also belonged to him. The owner of the vehicle said Guillory would not have know about the gun.
In this matter, Guillory was sentenced to 15 days in the parish jail for the charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, careless operation without accident, driving under suspension and improper lane usage. Following his release, Guillory will be placed on six months of active supervised probation.
On the charge of flight from an officer, Guillory was sentenced to serve six months in the parish jail.
Guillory will also be required to pay the following fines and fees: $550 fine, $823 court cost, $250 District Attorney prosecution fee, and $50 per month probation fee.
