Posted at 1:25 PM, Apr 04, 2019

Former priest Michael Guidry is now listed on the sex offender registry as he awaits sentencing.

Guidry, 76, pleaded guilty last month to sexual molestation of a juvenile, admitting that he molested a child who was the son of one of his church deacons.

KATC was in the courtroom when Judge Alonzo Harris accepted Guidry’s plea and set a sentencing date of April 30; to read that story click here.  To read KATC’s continuing coverage about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, click here.

During that hearing, Harris ordered that Guidry be placed on the sex offender registry and turn over his passport.

He’s now listed in both Acadia Parish, where he lives, and St. Landry Parish, where his church was located, as a sex offender.
