Alvin San Nicolas was convicted twice for criminal sexual conduct.

Guam – Alleged child rapist Alvin San Nicolas will not be heading back to trial for a third time, instead he has agreed to a plea deal with the Attorney General’s Office.

San Nicolas had twice been convicted of raping his stepdaughter but both convictions were overturned on appeal as a result of procedural and technical errors.  It was five years ago that San Nicolas was accused of raping his step daughter for a year while her mother was deployed.

In court, today his attorney Stephen Hattori, notified the court that the case has been resolved and there would be no need for a third trial. The resolution comes as a result of a plea deal San Nicolas will be entering in which he will plead guilty to third degree criminal sexual conduct and first degree criminal sexual conduct while the rest of the charges will be dismissed.

The plea deal means that San Nicolas will serve a total of 10 years in prison with credit for time served. Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola noted that San Nicolas could be eligible for parole after three years.

Once released he will remain on supervised probation for three years. His next court date is scheduled for Friday, August 25 at 130 p.m.
