Varrio Diamond Norteno Gang Member Gets Life Sentence

Two other gang members get 30 years in murder of rival gang mameber

District Attorney Jan Scully announced that the Honorable Judge Lloyd Connelly sentenced James Riggins to two life terms in prison without the possibility of parole plus 135 years to life for the first degree murders of Rigoberto Aguirre and Isidro Cedillo, and for the premeditated and deliberated attempted murder of Victor Cedillo.

Co-defendants, Orlando Camacho and Christopher Hernandez, were each sentenced to 30 years, 8 months in prison for voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of Rigoberto Aguirre and Isidro Cedillo, and the attempted voluntary manslaughter of Victor Cedillo.

All three defendants were validated Varrio Diamond Norteno gang members. The victims were shot by Riggins because they had reported previous assaults, including a drive by shooting at their house by members of the Varrio Diamonds.

These reports resulted in the conviction of some gang members and an increased number of police contacts with other Varrio Diamond gang members, which led to probation and parole violation arrests. In addition, the victims were living in a neighborhood claimed by the Varrio Diamonds and were identified by that gang as Surenos, a rival gang.
