Nate Baker, a deputy district attorney for the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office died suddenly Thursday morning.
Baker, 42, died at University of California San Francisco Medical Center, where he was scheduled to undergo a heart procedure.
Baker was known by his colleagues and those in the law enforcement community as an unwavering advocate for victims.
Baker joined the district attorney’s office in 1996 and most recently handled cases involving child abuse and domestic violence. In 2007 he successfully prosecuted the case of a group of home invasion robbers who terrorized families living in rural areas of the county and in June he helped send Terry and Chandy Indula, a Modesto couple, to prison for the brutal beatings of two girls, ages 3-years and 5-years.
“This is an immeasurable loss to every single one of us,” said District Attorney Birgit Fladager. “Nate was loved and well-respected by everyone in this office, law enforcement and the court system. He was dedicated and committed to making our community a safer place to live. He will be greatly missed.”
Baker is survived by his wife and two children, as well as his mother, father and brother.
Details on the services are not currently known, but will be released when finalized.
