Lawyers for both sides in Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo's misdemeanor peeking case agreed Friday to a new set of court dates to allow more time to discuss a possible plea bargain.

Appearing before Judge Arnold Rosenfield, Carrillo's attorney Chris Andrian and prosecutor Cody Hunt were given a new date of Feb. 14 to update the court on their settlement talks.

Both lawyers said this week they had not yet begun substantive discussions.

"We both have our respective views on the case," Andrian said Friday after the brief court appearance. "We'll sit down and see if there's any common ground."

The trial date, once set for Feb. 28, was pushed back on Friday to March 7.

Carrillo, 32, faces up to six months in jail if convicted. He did not attend Friday's hearing.

He was arrested in July after he was found partially clothed outside the home of a Santa Rosa woman who twice phoned 911 in the early morning hours, the first time to report a man outside her bedroom window.

She told dispatchers she was awakened by the sound of moving window blinds.

She placed a second 911 call 10 minutes later to report someone knocked on her front door, identified himself as a neighbor, and ran away.

Officers found a torn window screen. Carrillo was in the area, clad in socks and underwear and carrying a cellphone.
