Nutting gets new judge, new bail

Monday El Dorado County Supervisor Raymond J. Nutting was set to be arraigned on a Grand Jury indictment, which now supersedes the criminal complaint filed on May 24, 2013, with new bail being set in the felony matter in the amount of $20,000. The new judge assigned to the case, the Honorable Timothy S. Buckley, ordered the return of the $55,000 bail money illegally obtained by Nutting.

Attorneys for both the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office and the California Attorney General’s Office were present for the hearing with Supervisor Nutting at a South Lake Tahoe courtroom.

The indictment alleges four felony counts relating to the filing of false documents, the failure to disclose income and having a financial interest in a county contract. The misdemeanor complaint filed on June 6, alleges seven misdemeanor charges stemming from his payment of $55,000 bail in cash and obtaining that money in violation of Government Code sections 87460(a) & (c), and 87461(a) — illegal loans from El Dorado County contractors and El Dorado County employees.

In Court Nutting’s attorney David Weiner stated his intent to file a demurrer and dismissal motion. These motions are now set for hearing on Sept. 20, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 3.

This case was investigated by the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office, and will be a joint prosecution by the California Attorney General’s Office and the DA’s Office.
