Judge grants part of Guidry's motion requesting evidence from prosectors

A man accused of escaping from Welsh police and leading law enforcement on a manhunt last month has won a partial victory in federal court.

A federal judge has ordered prosecutors to tell Damien Guidry and his lawyers what alleged prior convictions will be presented during Guidry's trial on a felon in possession of a firearm charge.

Magistrate Judge C. Michael Hill wrote Wednesday that Guidry has a right to know what evidence the government will rely on during its case against him.

Hill however tossed out Guidry's motion asking prosecutors to disclose what alleged prior convictions were presented to the grand jury that handed down Guidry's indictment.

The federal government has until next Wednesday to provide Guidry the information.
