El Cajon Superior Court Judge Robert Amador gave Nataley Ann Gutierrez, 30, three years for robbery and 10 years consecutively for using a gun in a felony.

Deputy District Attorney George Modlin said Gutierrez stole four bottles containing 400 pills of Percocet on April 7, 2015 from the pharmacy located on Mission Gorge Road in Santee.

A restitution hearing was set for Aug. 18 when the judge will consider whether Gutierrez should reimburse the pharmacist who missed a lot of work after the incident.

Gutierrez was given credit for about a month previously spent in jail. She had been free on $100,000 bond until Amador remanded her into custody April 18 after a jury convicted her of armed robbery after three hours of deliberations.

Modlin said the painkiller medication was not recovered. He requested a sentence of 15 years.

Twelve years in prison for man convicted in Lakeside murder

A 12-year prison term has been handed down to a second man who participated in the 2008 fatal shooting of Randy Vogler in Lakeside.  

Brian Jeffrey Baldino, 32, was ordered to share restitution of $1,807 for Vogler’s funeral expenses with Destin Lee Withers, 41, who was also convicted of killing Vogler, 28.

El Cajon Superior Court Lantz Lewis gave Baldino credit for serving 779 days in jail.

Both men were charged with killing Vogler, of Lakeside, in 2014 following a long investigation by the sheriff’s department. Vogler was shot Feb. 11, 2008, as he walked in the 12200 block of Woodside Ave. in Lakeside.

Vogler worked at a nearby carnival. Deputies reported two men with shaved heads were seen driving away after gunshots were fired.

A jury deadlocked 10-2 for conviction against Baldino in March. He later pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and a murder charge was dismissed. 

Another jury convicted Withers of first-degree murder and he was sentenced Jan. 20 to life in prison without the possibility of parole plus six years for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Withers was already serving a sentence of 33 years to life for killing a young woman in Escondido.

Jesus Joel Perez, 27, is charged with attempted murder, firing a weapon from a motor vehicle, three counts of felony assault, possession of a firearm by a felon.

El Cajon Superior Court Judge John Thompson heard the preliminary hearing and also ordered Perez to stand trial on gang allegations in which the shooting was allegedly done in association with a criminal street gang. An aggravated mayhem charge was dismissed.

Sheriff’s detectives investigated the shooting and arrested Perez on Dec. 14 in Del Mar. Perez has pleaded not guilty and remains in jail on $1 million bail.

No jail time for Lemon Grove woman for Social Security fraud

A Lemon Grove woman who pleaded guilty to theft of public property when she deposited checks to her deceased father has paid $170,276 back to the Social Security administration.

Attorney James Fitzpatrick said his client, Pamela Anita Thomas, 63, has also paid the $3,000 fine that was imposed against her by U.S. District Court Judge Cynthia Bashant.

No jail time was ordered and Thomas was placed on three years probation. She has paid everything back.

“It was an overpayment by Social Security. It was not something she initiated,” said Fitzpatrick.

Thomas’ father, Belee Gilbert, died in 2001 and he had received Social Security payments via direct deposit to his bank account. The U.S. Attorney’s office said Thomas did not notify the Social Security administration of his death and the checks kept coming.
