Former PFI worker sentenced for disorderly conduct


Former PFI worker Mark Diega, 50, of Chula Vista, Calif., pled guilty to an amended, misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct on Aug. 28 at a proceeding before Superior Court Judge William Carey. He was sentenced to serve 10 days in jail and one year of probation. He is also banned from the PFI property and may not possess a firearm while in Petersburg, should he return.

Diega initially faced a felony charge of Terroristic Threatening for an Aug. 8 incident where the former PFI worker attempted to purchase an assault rifle and was overheard making a death threat to PFI staff and workers. After a Trading Union Hardware employee reported the incident, Diega was arrested by local police and consented to a portable breath test, which showed a blood alcohol content level of .247.

On Aug. 12, he appeared for a bail hearing where Magistrate Judge Mike A. Jackson amended a condition of his release to allow Diega to return to California. Shortly after, he posted $500 bail and left Alaska.
