ME­DIA COURT­HOUSE >> A Ch­ester man was sen­tenced to four to eight years in state pri­son Thurs­day af­ter plead­ing guilty to charges of rape by forcible com­pul­sion and ag­gra­vated as­sault, both felonies of the first de­gree.

Shaquille Ma­lik Till­mon, 23, was also given seven years of con­sec­u­tive sex of­fender state pro­ba­tion and or­dered to reg­is­ter as a sex of­fender for life un­der the ne­go­ti­ated plea worked out by As­sis­tant Dis­trict At­tor­ney Christo­pher Boggs and de­fense coun­sel Glen Hoff­man.

Till­mon was ar­rested Dec. 28 for bru­tally at­tack­ing a woman Christ­mas Eve in Deshong Park in the 900 block of Av­enue of the States.

The vic­tim told po­lice she was walk­ing through the park when a man ap­proached her with a knife, grabbed her by the hair, and pulled her into nearby woods. Po­lice said Till­mon then raped and stabbed his vic­tim, who was ad­mit­ted to Croz­erCh­eser Med­i­cal Cen­ter for her in­juries.

The woman de­scribed her as­sailant as a black man, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall in his mid-20s with a small Afro. She said he was wear­ing dark cloth­ing with a book bag and rid­ing a bi­cy­cle, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Ch­ester de­tec­tives were able to iden­tify Till­mon as a sus­pect and the vic­tim later iden­ti­fied him as her as­sailant from a photo ar­ray.

Till­mon has been in­car­cer­ated at the county pri­son in Con­cord since his ar­rest in lieu of $1 mil­lion cash bail. He had also been charged with mul­ti­ple other of­fenses, in­clud­ing stran­gu­la­tion, in­vol­un­tary de­vi­ate sex­ual in­ter­course, ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault and reck­less en­dan­ger­ment. The re­main­ing charges were with­drawn pur­suant to the plea agree­ment ac­cepted by Delaware County Com­mon Pleas Court Judge Barry Do­zor.

Nei­ther Till­mon nor his at­tor­ney had any­thing fur­ther to say to the court Thurs­day.

In ad­di­tion to pri­son time and pro­ba­tion, Till­mon was or­dered to sub­mit a DNA sam­ple to state po­lice, com­ply with all rec­om­men­da­tions of a psy­cho­sex­ual eval­u­a­tion and stay away from the vic­tim. He is not el­i­gi­ble for early re­lease.
