According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “Darrian Guillory represented himself as an inmate’s attorney in order to gain access to meet with an inmate on January 26th 2021. Guillory was later found not to be an attorney and a warrant was issued.”

On January 26th 2021, Guillory requested to speak to an inmate due to a court proceeding that day. During court, Guillory was seen sitting in the seats for the public and not where the attorneys sit which raised suspicions. A corrections deputy also overheard when Guillory approached an attorney, he was told to sit in the audience until his name was called.

The Corrections Section then opened an investigation and found that Guillory had visited the inmate under the appearance of being an attorney three separate times posing as his attorney. A warrant was then issued for Guillory.

On behalf of Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, this is Deputy Chief Eddie Thibodeaux. All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
