Bond will not be reduced for a Rapid City man, originally from New Mexico, accused of raping a three year old.
38-year-old, Alexander Palomarez is charged with first degree rape, and four counts of distributing and manufacturing child pornography.
On Wednesday, Palomarez's attorney requested a reduction to his $100,000 cash only bond. Judge Janine Kern denied the request due to the severity of the charges.
If convicted, Palomarez faces life in prison. He will be back in court on September 16th.
