Meriden man pleads guilty to fourth-degree sexual assault, voyeurism 



 

MERIDEN — A local man pleaded guilty to voyeurism and sexual assault charges Wednesday.

Anthony Diskin, 37, of 67 Laurel Heights, pleaded guilty under the Alford Doctrine to voyeurism, fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor in Meriden Superior Court. Under the Alford Doctrine, a defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges the state has enough evidence for a conviction.

The plea deal calls for Diskin to be sentenced to six years, suspended after one year, followed by 10 years’ probation. Diskin will have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

In 2016, police were notified by the state Department of Children and Families about an allegation of sexual contact between Diskin and a 13-year-old, according to the arrest warrant. Diskin denied the allegation.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 10.
