WENATCHEE — A convicted rapist who set out to coerce his victim to drop her testimony was sentenced Monday to 2 1/2 years in prison, but the sentence will run alongside the nearly 12 years he’s already serving. Martin Diaz, 49, of Wenatchee entered an Alford plea to a charge of conspiracy to intimidate a witness, denying police claims that he hired a fellow jail inmate to threaten his rape victim but agreeing that he would likely be convicted at trial.
