Rapid City man facing multiple life sentences for rape


A Rapid City man faces multiple life sentences if convicted of sex crimes against three young girls.

Joseph Arguello Sr. was arraigned Monday morning on 26 counts of first degree rape.

He also faces two counts of possession of child pornography, but his attorney, Tim Rensch, wants the child porn charges tried separately.

Arguello Sr. was originally indicted in July of 2012.

He's accused of raping three sisters between 2008 and 2012.

First degree rape carries a maximum of life in prison.

The maximum penalty of sexual contact with a minor is 15 years.

Arguello Sr. is currently free on $300,000 bond.
