Ted Diamond, the former Moodus contractor arrested in California last month (read how he was caught, because of a snail, in this Bottom Line column) in a fencing scam, accepted a plea bargain Monday and was convicted in Ventura County Superior Court of identity theft and grand theft, both felonies, and two misdemeanor petty-theft charges.
Five felony charges were dropped as part of the plea bargain, leaving Diamond with at least one year and up to three years, eight months in jail when sentenced Oct. 5. With the lower amount more likely, victims say Diamond made a sweetheart deal.
“We all feel here in California that he got a slap on the wrist and want more justice served,” says Deanna Stikkelman, co-owner of the Guardian Fence Co. of Simi Valley, which briefly employed Diamond until it found out he was using company bid sheets to fraudulently solicit down payments from customers.

An alert to Diamond’s victims in Connecticut: Call Linda Oakes of the Consumer Protection unit at the state attorney general’s office at 860-808-5400.
