A former Napa County official convicted faces up to 30 days in the Napa County jail after pleading Wednesday in Napa County Superior Court to a gun-related misdemeanor.
Ty Cook, a former Napa County Emergency Medical Services administrator, was convicted in September of methamphetamine possession, a felony, and soliciting prostitution, misdemeanor. But the jury deadlocked on another felony — methamphetamine possession with a firearm.
By agreeing to enter Wednesday’s plea, Cook, 50, avoids the possibility of a new trial on that felony gun charge which the Napa County District Attorney’s Office dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
Napa County Superior Court Judge Mark Boessenecker on Wednesday set sentencing for Nov. 13.
Cook, who was arrested in January after an underage call girl was stopped for speeding on Highway 29 with one of Cook’s check in her possession, could serve up to a month in the Napa County jail for being armed in a criminal action, methamphetamine possession and soliciting prostitution.
As a convicted felon, Cook will not be allowed to possess a firearm and agreed not to ask to reduce the outstanding felony to a misdemeanor, said prosecutor Scott Young.
