Sutter Creek, California lies in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, a former mining town that maintains its Gold Rush facade as it caters to bustling tourist trade. Sutter Creek is a part of Amador County in Central California, originally a gold mining town that served as the provisions hub for a number of gold mines in the area. Sutter Creek was founded by John Sutter, owner of the mill in nearby Coloma where James Marshall discovered the original “mother lode” in 1848. Marshall’s discovery at Sutter’s mill triggered the California Gold Rush.
The influx of gold seekers to the area around Coloma prompted Sutter to seek a home elsewhere. He settled on a creek in the Sierra Nevada foothills, planning to mine gold himself. However, John Sutter proved to be no miner, and he left after several years, leaving behind a town that bore his name.

How Bail Bonds Work in Sutter Creek
Arresting officers and district attorneys will often charge multiple counts and/or the most serious charges for which a person might be found guilty, even though these charges may be reduced before trial or upon plea agreement. This often results in very high bail amounts that can be difficult for defendants or their family members to produce. That’s when you need the services of a bail bondsman.

DUI Charges in Sutter Creek
If you drink and drive in Sutter Creek, CA, you are very likely to get pulled over and be charged with DUI, DWI, or DUI of Drugs. DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence and is a charge that can be applied to someone driving a vehicle while drunk. DWI stands for Driving While Intoxicated and has the same definition as DUI. DUI of Drugs means driving under the influence of any type of drugs or over the counter medication.
A simple rule of thumb is: if you drink or take or smoke anything that inhibits your ability to safely drive, and yet you drive anyway, you can be charged with DUI, DWI, or DUI of Drugs.
DUI Laws In Sutter Creek California
While driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is illegal throughout the State of California, Orange County has some of the toughest laws for punishing those convicted of DUI charges.
The drunk driving laws for California are found in Vehicle Code Section 23152 and Vehicle Code section 23153, which says that:
- 23152(a) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of alcohol to operate a vehicle
- 23152(b) It is illegal for anyone who has a blood alcohol content exceeding 0.08% or more to operate a vehicle.
- 23152(e) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of drugs to operate a vehicle.
- 23152(f) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of any combination of drugs or alcohol to operate a vehicle.
In many cases, both the 23152(a) and 23152(b) charges will be filed together.
VC 23152(e) – DUI of Drugs Charge
Driving under the influence of Drugs is a violation of the Vehicle Code 231452(e), which reads: “It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle.” It is very similar to driving under the influence of alcohol. One way that this charge differs from a regular “DUI” charge is that when an officer suspects the presence of drugs in someone's system, a breathalyzer test will not show drugs and a blood test will have to be ordered. Other evidence that can be used to charge someone with DUI of drugs includes the defendant's statements, behavior, and appearance.

Domestic Violence Bail Bonds in Sutter Creek
California domestic violence laws state that it is illegal to use physical force or make threats of harm against an intimate partner. An intimate partner includes a spouse, former spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, former girl- or boyfriend, someone you date or used to date, same-sex partner, a person you live and have an intimate relationship, or used to live and have an intimate relationship, or someone with whom you have a child. In other words, if you have, or have ever had, romantic feelings for or an intimate relationship with someone and then become involved in any kind of force, you could be charged with domestic violence charges, and not just simple battery.
PC 273.5 says that it is illegal to inflict “corporal punishment” that results in an injury, no matter how slight. That means if you strike another person who is, or was, an intimate partner, and leave a mark, you have violated PC 273.5 and can be charged with domestic violence.
PC 243 (3)(1) makes it a misdemeanor crime to use force against an intimate partner. In this case, a visible injury is not necessary, just the act of force.
Battery With Serious Bodily Injury
Aggravated assault includes assault with a deadly weapon or assault where there is an intent to commit a felony such as rape or murder.
Aggravated battery is a violation of PC 243(d) and can be called battery with serious bodily injury or aggravated battery. This is the result of battery that caused serious injury to another person, making it different from simple battery where no injury is required to make a charge.
Battery Bail Bonds in Sutter Creek, CA
Often, prosecutors and law enforcement officers will charge you with the most serious versions of the crimes they believe have been committed, even if those charges will be reduced, later on.
