Richard Dudek appeared on behalf of bail bondsman Kenneth Waters for a readiness and settlement hearing for Waters’ Dec. 11 trial to confirm the date.
Judge Daniel B. Proud confirmed that Waters is set for a three day trial starting Dec. 3 in Department 2 of the El Dorado County Superior Court.
As deputy district attorney Trish Kelliher was ill and not in court, both prosecutor Bill Clark and Dudek agreed to another readiness and settlement hearing on Nov. 30 at 11 a.m.
Dudek also brought up that he had not received a transcript of the preliminary hearing where a woman, who remained anonymous, testified that she had exchanged a sexual act in lieu of half of her bail money with Waters. The charges against Waters stem from that incident.
