STOCKTON - An 18-year-old Stockton man was convicted Tuesday of raping an 87-year-old woman while he also burglarized her cottage home at O'Connor Woods retirement community Oct. 9, 2010.
Kunta Shaquille Ali Rigmaden will be sentenced to 15 years to life at a hearing to be held within the next 28 days. A San Joaquin County Superior Court jury found him guilty of rape and multiple counts of burglary. The jury could not come to a consensus on an additional count of sodomy, voting 11-1 in favor of conviction on that count after 21/2 days of deliberations.
Della Maggiore said she will inform the court June 16 whether the District Attorney's Office will attempt to retry Rigmaden on the sodomy count.
"The (jury) decided the main issue. They found him guilty of rape and of burglary, and that's really what this case is," she said.
Rigmaden's mother, Etosha Shoffner, said she plans to appeal the jury's decision.
"Where we go from here is up," Shoffner said. "The case was brought on a whole lot of garbage. My son's DNA was not found at the scene. It's bogus. It's lies."
Jury foreman Hawa Suahip said the panel - six men and six women - were confident in their decision.
"The process was fair and intense during 21/2 days of deliberations. People have a sense of value of themselves, so we didn't have to convince people; they had their own views," she said.

Any one with that name needs to be locked up immediately.
Anyone who would rape an 87 year old woman has totally abrogated any claim to membership in the fellowship of Humanity.
They need to be gently, humanely, and safely euthanized. Not in anger. Not in vengeance. Simply with the acknowledgment that some creatures are simply too dangerous to be allowed to live.
If obama had a son he would look like Kunta....and probably act like him, too.
While I understand your sentiments sometimes a good old fashioned public hanging goes a long way towards discouraging similar behavior in others.
This scumbag should be shot and thrown in the dumpster behind the courthouse. There is no form of scum lower then those that rape children and the elderly.
...Kunta Shaquille Ali Rigmaden...
One can only hope Kunta is introduced to prison justice.
Well there was more than likely *some* DNA evidence.
Where are the other two suspects and does the DNA belong to one of them?
He won’t snitch?
Maybe the prison dwellers have ways of making him talk.
BULL! Torture this piece of crap to death....S.L.O.W.L.Y. Film it so every thug gangbanger in America can have a look. Freakin’ savages do not deserve a humane or gentle death as you say. Extended and painful is the proper way. I have HAD it with these rabid animals!!!!
Damn Amish anyways. /s
Well, if he knows, he’d better snitch and hope for a plea deal.
Meanwhile, I’m sure Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will be flying out anytime now to demand justice for the victims /of course not, they won’t get money to do that for this
Kunta Kinte Shaquille O’Neill Muhammad Ali Ramadan Rigmaden.
“Kunta Kinte Shaquille ONeill Muhammad Ali Ramadan Rigmaden.”
Who’s his daddy? Nosmo King?
“Kunta Shaquille Ali Rigmaden “
Does his mom and dad have any idea that the naming of a child means something??
Kunta- a made up name from some made-for-tv mini series.
Ali- the 4th Calliph of Islam
So Ms. Rigmaden basically names her son “imaginary-handsome-best friend to a pedophile” and expects him to prosper in life??
This guy does not deserve to be a human. And his mother, who is defending him, is probably just as unworthy. I’m not even going to mention Mr. Rigmaden, senior. He’s probably not even in the picture, anyway.
I was on Paul Shannon’s show as a Cub Scout. Grandma critiqued my performance. She said my cap was too low over my eyes.
I was one of the Cubbies picked to sing with Joe Negri on Popeye and Kinish which preceded Paul’s show.
Mom said “Keep your day job”.
The trouble always starts with those crazy names and then goes downhill from there. That thug’s name was a death sentence from Day One.
