New Orleans, LA - Felon Pleads Guilty To Possession of a Firearm

Phillip Guidry, age 49, of Loranger, Louisiana, yesterday pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to court documents, a March 2, 2018 search of GUIDRY’s home revealed that he possessed five (5) firearms, including shotguns and pistols. GUIDRY faces a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) which is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

U.S. Attorney Strasser praised the work of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Louisiana State Police.
