“The purpose of the plot was to participate in a cyberstalking campaign that harassed and threatened. [Hadley) by framing her for criminal conduct that she did not commit,” the indictment says.

The plot worked: Diaz and his wife staged “one or more hoax sexual assaults” and attempted assaults, and then contacted police to report that Hadley was responsible for hiring the men, according to the indictment.

When police showed up at Diaz’s home on June 13, 2016, he told officers that Hadley “needs to be in f—— cuffs and in a padded room,” the indictment says.

Diaz said he investigates threats made to federal judges and prosecutors in his role as a U.S. marshal but he had “never seen anything like this,” the indictment says.

“At what point does this girl get arrested for sending this s— and hiring guys off Craigslist to rape [the then-wife]According to the indictment, he also told police officers.

According to the indictment, Hadley was arrested by Anaheim police a week and a half after Diaz’s wife called 911 to report her sexual assault.

Hadley eventually spent 88 days in prison before the indictment was withdrawn.

Diaz was arrested Wednesday for cyberstalking, a conspiracy to commit cyberstalking, and perjury. Federal defender Jason Hannan, who represented Diaz in his first appearance, declined to comment.

The US Marshals Service did not immediately respond to the request for comment.

“We have worked extensively with the Secretary of Justice’s office after the Secretary of Justice’s immunity,” said Michael Guisti, a criminal defense and civil lawyer for Hadley until 2018.

“It’s a very difficult sale and it took someone five years to finally hear it,” Guisti said. “It was very frustrating, but I am very happy to hear that the appropriate measures have been taken.”

Diaz’s wife is not named in the indictment, but is known to be Angela Diaz. She was sentenced to five years in prison in 2017 after pleading guilty to the plot.

Ian and Angela Diaz are divorced.

Just last month, Hadley settled a federal proceeding against the city of Anaheim for a private amount.

“The courage and diligence of the client, who filed a civil lawsuit settled on the eve of the trial last week, revealed holes and coverts in Anaheim’s investigation,” said the lawyer. Maggie McCrechy and Carrie Goldberg on behalf of Hadley.

“Let’s make this a lesson for all abusers. The law catches up with you, even if you are a law enforcement agency.”
