Registered Sex Offender Accused Of Rape

Registered Sex Offender Accused Of Rape
Alvin Plastow

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A 38-year-old Sioux Falls man, who was recently released from prison for raping children, is back behind bars.

Alvin Plastow, who is a registered sex offender, is now accused of raping a three-year-old girl on two separate occasions last summer.

Plastow spent 15 years in prison for sexually abusing two young victims back in 1998. Now the registered sex offender is in more trouble; facing two counts of first-degree rape and one count of manufacturing child pornography. 

According to court documents, Plastow was living with a Sioux Falls family on South Walts Avenue back in August when the incidents happened.

The father of the three-year-old victim confronted Plastow about how he was interacting with his daughter. The father told Plastow he didn't like the way he would stroke the victim's face and leg when she was sitting on his lap.

He was also concerned that Plastow was a registered sex offender and had been in prison for molesting children.

When interviewed by police, Plastow said the victim had been living with him for about three weeks before he started to experience uncontrollable sexual urges toward her. 

He also admitted to touching the girl twice inappropriately. The first time he was helping her in the bathroom. The second time he had the girl undress in a bedroom where he took pictures of her private parts and touched her inappropriately again. Plastow admitted to police both times he became sexually excited.

When authorities searched Plastow's cell phone, they found pictures of young children in sexually explicit positions.

Plastow is facing life in prison if convicted.  He's being held in jail on a half million dollars bond.
