Man accused of rape and human trafficking in SLO County

November 4, 2020

Dominick Alleva


A 21-year-old Florida man is awaiting extradition to San Luis Obispo County to face charges of statutory rape, human trafficking, child pornography, stalking and witness intimidation.

Dominick Alleva’s legal troubles began in April when San Luis Obispo County deputies arrested him on suspicion of statutory rape. While Alleva was in custody, investigators discovered evidence of human trafficking of a minor and the possession, production, and distribution of child pornography.

In May, a judge increased his bail from $45,000 to $150,000. Alleva then paid the bail and returned to Boca Raton, Florida, where he is suspected of violating a criminal protective order.

Armed with an arrest warrant, SLO County sheriff and district attorney investigators traveled to Florida where they arrested Alleva on Monday on charges of stalking and witness intimidation.

Alleva is currently in custody in Palm Beach County. Investigators anticipate Alleva will return to SLO County in the near future.


Dang! Talk about the long arm of the law lol


Proposition 25 was one of the few Propositions I voted YES on. Unfortunately it did not pass. I do not understand why it is so difficult for people to realize that because a person has the money to make bail, it does not make them any less likely to flee or continue to be a danger in the community than someone who does not have the means to make bail. How does a 21 year old have the money to come up with $15,000.00 cash to make bail then flee the state? It is obviously ill gotten gains from human trafficking or selling of child pornography or he has enabling parents. This in a prime example of why the cash bail system is so flawed. Very disappointed Prop 25 didn’t pass.

OK. So I always get slammed with the “down arrows” on this site for saying that cash bail is BS.


The story above is one really good reason why it is a very bad system that does not offer equal justice under the law. Because some uber sleazy creep like this, who has access to tons of ill gotten gains, for instance, can just buy his way free and disappear. While someone of lesser means, who might be innocent, cannot. Had his freedom been determined by his accused offenses, background and flight risk, he would be safely tucked away exactly where he belongs, not at large to further prey upon the public.

I must say that I am impressed by the enterprise of one so young. If he is not put away for a significant amount of time, we can look forward to him having cash on hand to game the system for some time to come…….


“In May, a judge increased his bail from $45,000 to $150,000. Alleva then paid the bail and returned to Boca Raton, Florida, where he is suspected of violating a criminal protective order.”

I think this is exhibit A of why it’s a shame that Proposition 25 eliminating cash bail didn’t pass, because it would have prevented perps like this creep from just making cash bail and fleeing the area to intimidate witnesses. I wonder how much it cost us taxpayers for the SLO sheriff and DA to have to fly out to Florida to arrest him and transport him back?
