Prosecutors at the time said Hadley also sent Diaz numerous s threatening her life and the life of her unborn .
But authorities now believe that Diaz was actually the perpetrator behind the Craigslist and s in a effort to frame Hadley. Rackauckas is expected to drop all charges against Hadley, who was released on her own recognizance in October. Hadley is cleared in every possible way — in the courtroom, and in the court of public opinion.
Prosecutors said Hadley dated her former fiance, identified in court records as U. The couple live in Anaheim. Court records show that Angela Diaz filed a restraining order against Hadley in June.
Diaz then accused Hadley of violating the restraining order and stalking her. Prosecutors on Monday said it was Diaz who actually responded to the Craigslist. Authorizes said she then called and falsely claimed that a man entered her garage and attempted to rape her before she was able to call for help and chase the man away.
Rackauckas said authorities had good reason to arrest and charge Hadley at the time for safety concerns, because of the continuing threats and repeated responses on Craigslist. Complicating the case, prosecutors said, was that Diaz allegedly sent the s to herself from eight different s using private networks and third-party servers to disguise her Internet Protocol IP address.
She is awaiting extradition in Arizona and faces up to 23 years in custody if convicted. Among the charges she faces are misdemeanor counts of falsely reporting a crime to police.
He said Hadley, whose he described as vivacious and bubbly, is relieved that the charges will be dropped. Her lawyer said that Anaheim police should have investigated the case more thoroughly before arresting her.
According to Orange County Superior Court records, Hadley and Ian Diaz are embroiled in a legal battle over an Anaheim condo the couple had purchased together in before their split. Hadley last year sued Diaz for breach of contract. In a request for a restraining order filed by Angela Diaz against Hadley in June, Diaz alleged Hadley was harassing her through numerous s.
Hadley has used over six different addresses to contact me, despite a request to cease communication. To support her claim, Diaz provided roughly two dozen threatening s, some containing Biblical references. You have no idea who you are with — he is a dangerous, aggressive person with no soul.
You will suffer. You will feel rape. I will pray for you.
