Rapid City man admits raping 3-year-old girl

Posted: Updated:

A Rapid City man accused of first-degree rape changed his plea to guilty Wednesday.    

Alexander Palomarez, 38 of Rapid City, faces up to life in prison when he's sentenced on Dec. 9.

In exchange for his guilty plea, the state will drop four counts of distributing and manufacturing child pornography.

By accepting the deal, Palomarez had to admit his crime.  He told Seventh Circuit Judge Janine Kern that he performed a sex act on his girlfriend's three-year-old daughter.  The crime happened on June 1, 2013 while he was babysitting.

He also took pictures of the crime on his phone.

Palomarez will undergo a sex offender evaluation before sentencing.  His attorney said his client plans to address the victim's family at that time.

He's being held without bond.
