Jail time for diamond theft
JAFFREY — A Jaffrey woman will spend 21 days in jail after pleading guilty to stealing a diamond engagement ring in May.
According to court documents on file at the Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene, Sabra Trudeau, 23, of Jaffrey took the ring, which was worth in excess of $1,500 from the home of its owner identified in court documents only by initials. The theft took place on May 16 in Swanzey, according to court documents.
“Trudeau cleaned the victim’s house, therefore, giving her access to the property,” said Swanzey Police Chief Thomas R. De Angelis in an interview with the Ledger-Transcript in November when Trudeau was arrested.
After pleading guilty to the Class A felony on Feb. 28, Trudeau will spend 21 days of her year-long sentence in the Cheshire County House of Corrections. The rest of the sentence will be suspended for three years. A Class A felony can carry a maximum sentence of 15 years and fines of up to $4,000.
