San Diego North County Courthouse in Vista
A man who allegedly invaded a home in the remote eastern edges of Escondido, and was reportedly shot multiple times by the homeowner, is due in court on Wednesday, September 13.
Noe Colimas Valladares, 28 (who also spells his last name "Valladerez" and reportedly uses the aliases Lewis or Louis Gutierrez Valladares) is described in court files as Hispanic, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 200 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
After the alleged home-invasion incident, Valladares faces two misdemeanors for vandalism and trespass. His court date next week is for a misdemeanor trial. He is currently at liberty, bailed out on bond.
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department issued a press release about a month ago (on August 16), reporting that Noe Calimas Valladares invaded a home at 15985 Highland Valley Road. Deputies responded at 1:33 a.m. and found a husband and wife, 47 and 46 years old, outside their home. The couple’s two teenaged daughters were hiding in a room inside the home and were rescued by officers before the intruder was persuaded to come out of the master bedroom.
Valladares had suffered multiple gunshot wounds from the homeowner, according to the sheriff, and was first taken to Palomar Hospital before being booked into custody by 10:18 a.m. that same morning.
He was able to bail out two weeks later. On September 2 he paid $6500 in fees for $65,000 in bonds guaranteed by Bail Hotline Bail Bonds, according to his court files.
Besides the first trial date this coming Wednesday (September 13), Valladares has another misdemeanor trial date set for the following Monday (September 18). That second trial date is set for alleged battery of spouse and twice disobeying protective court orders.
All because of meth?
Attorney Brian Dooley has represented Valladares in past.
Valladares, who has been described as a “transient” by law enforcement, is known to police in Escondido. On March 27, 2016, he was arrested for possession of meth and was in jail one day before he paid a $500 fee for a $5000 bail bond. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.
On May 10, 2016, he was accused of under the influence and trespass. In the plea deal he admitted to the drug charge as a misdemeanor, “I was under the influence of methamphetamine” and the trespass charge was dropped. Valladares was ordered to stay away from 1249 Kent Avenue in Escondido.
On August 27, 2016, Valladares allegedly kidnapped and carjacked the mother of his child. He was charged with five felonies in all, including robbery and inflicting corporal injury on spouse. He pleaded guilty five months later to making a criminal threat, and all other charges were dismissed.
Hon. Judge Carlos Armour has seen this defendant before.
On the plea-deal paperwork, Valladares admitted: “Unlawfully threatened to commit a crime that could result in death or great bodily injury, with the specific intent that the verbal statement be taken as a threat that was unequivocal under the circumstances with a gravity of purpose, that caused the person to reasonably be in sustained fear for safety.”
Public defender Brian Dooley, prosecutor L. Spencer Daly, and judge Carlos Armour signed the plea deal on January 10 of this year. A month later, that one “criminal threat” charge was reduced to a misdemeanor, per the plea deal, and Valladares was released from custody for time served.
More freedom, more accusations
On April 30, the district attorney accused Valladares of battery on the mother of his child and twice violating stay-away orders meant to protect the woman. These offenses were charged as misdemeanors; Valladares was 28 at the time and the female was 33. Valladares paid a $100 fee to post his $10,000 bond and was then a Failure to Appear for his court date June 14, 2017.
The specifics of the two upcoming court dates for Valladares are: misdemeanor trial for vandalism and trespass, on Wednesday, September 13, in department 5 at 8:50 a.m; trial for misdemeanor battery of spouse and twice disobeying protective court orders is set for Monday, September 18, at 8:50 a.m., in department 5 of San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse in Vista.
