After going over the history of the Kenneth Waters case, Judge Daniel B. Proud informed Waters’ attorney, Dan Karalash, that their demurrer, a type of motion to dismiss charges, was denied. The demurrer was regarding Waters’ alleged violation of probation.
Deputy District Attorney Trish Kelliher noted that Waters would need to serve the 120 days from his original sentence that had been stayed pending successful completion of probation, and requested that the stay be lifted.
Karalash then said that the stay would remain due to a pending motion in the 3rd District Appellate Court. Proud then said that the motion had already been ruled upon, on March 1 — the motion to appeal had been denied by the higher court.
A hearing for the imposition of sentencing regarding the alleged violation of probation was then set for March 21 at 3 p.m. in Department 2. The hearing will also double as a violation of probation hearing.
Waters was convicted in March 2013 of accepting sexual favors in lieu of half of a bail bond. The VOP charge alleges that he solicited prostitution in Sacramento.
