Guilbault is accused of stealing a vehicle from a driveway after finding the keys inside. He is facing two charges of Grand Larceny in the 4th degree as well as 3rd degree Identity Theft. He was to appear in Rensselaer County Court to face the charges, but didn't show. He's now wanted on a bench warrant.

According to the Department of Criminal Justice, Guilbault is also a level 2 registered sex offender. His profile lists his last reported address as 47 Row B Way in Troy.

In 2014 Guilbault was 2nd degree sexual abuse for sexual contact with a person less than 14 years old. The registry reports his victim was 12 at the time of the abuse. Guilbault was sentenced to six years probation in that case.
