From District Attorney Warren Montgomery

COVINGTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that a St. Tammany Parish jury found Stanton Guillory, 23, an inmate at the St. Tammany Parish jail, guilty Wednesday (Feb. 7) of three counts of obscenity. Guillory is scheduled for sentencing by District Judge Raymond Childress on Feb. 22.
At the time that he was charged with obscenity, Guillory was a federal inmate, housed at the St. Tammany jail on various federal charges, including murder and conspiracy to commit murder. The federal charges involve an alleged murder-for-hire scheme that resulted in the death of a federal witness. Guillory also has an additional pending second degree battery charge.
The obscenity charges stem from three different occasions last year, when Guillory exposed himself and masturbated in front of female workers in the jail, despite multiple warnings for him to stop.
Assistant District Attorney Blake Peters and Fred Treschwig, a third year law student in the Prosecution Clinic at Loyola University, prosecuted the case. The trial lasted approximately two hours, and the jury deliberated about 52 minutes before returning the guilty verdict.
