A former St. Landry Parish priest has pleaded the guilty to molestation charges today.

Michael Guidry pleaded guilty before District Judge Alonzo Harris. 

The 75-year-old former priest of a Morrow church turned himself in to authorities in June, 2018.

He will be sentenced at 9 a.m. on April 30. 

In August, the clergyman’s victim filed a lawsuit against Guidry and the Diocese of Lafayette.

The suit claims Guidry molested the boy from ages 11 to 16.
