A felon facing multiple felony charges in Linn County for reportedly leading law enforcement on a multi-county pursuit in February now faces charges in Livingston County.

Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox reports Prosecuting Attorney Adam Warren filed charges against 38 year old Matthew Guilford of Brookfield of first degree endangering the welfare of a child—first offense and tampering with physical evidence in a felony. No bond was assigned to the warrant.
