Recently an Elk Grove man named Dalaly was found not guilty of grand theft of a 5-carat diamond. The case was brought when it was discovered that the 5-carat diamond was switched with a cubic zirconia at Bloomingdale. Although the prosecution could prove that Dalaly had the opportunity to steal the diamond, the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Dalaly did steal it. The diamond stolen was worth $67,000. The co-defendant, John Rainone, pleaded guilty to switching the diamond and was sentenced to 6 months in jail and three years probation. He was also ordered to pay half of the diamond’s value.
