District Attorney Amador County

Amador County District Attorney Todd Riebe announced on Monday, June 22 that Amador County Counsel had rendered the opinion that the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is a guidance letter and therefore there is no criminal liability for those in violation, unlike prior Governor's Executive Orders and Amador Public Health orders that explicitly mentioned the statutes allowing criminal prosecution. The statute allowing criminal prosecution, which was previously cited in prior Amador County Public Health Officer is Health & Safety Code section 120295.
