Nutting trial pushed back

A status hearing regarding the case against El Dorado County Supervisor Ray Nutting ended with a new trial date.

Nutting’s attorney David Weiner began the hearing by telling Judge Tim Buckley that he would not be ready for the original trial date. The court then recessed while a meeting was held in the judge’s chambers.

After returning, Weiner noted the “volume of materials” he had to evaluate and said he was still receiving materials. Deputy District Attorney James Clinchard noted he was ready, but was aware of Weiner’s position.

The trial, beginning with jury selection, will now start on April 8.

Nutting has been charged by both the District Attorney’s Office and a Grand Jury with filing false documents, perjury by declaration and failure to recuse himself from Board of Supervisors votes that could be a conflict of interest. The charges stem from an investigation into Nutting’s participation in a state brush removal program. A second case, misdemeanors concerning Nutting allegedly obtaining loans for bail from fellow county employees and contractors, has been merged with the felony case.
