TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A Twin Falls man has reached a plea deal with prosecutors Friday afternoon in the two cases against him.

Joshua Nelson entered an Alford plea to rape and had the video voyeurism and dispensing alcohol to minors charges be dismissed.

In the other case, the state filed an amended complaint, removing the second count of video voyeurism. In exchange, he also entered an Alford plea to count one.

Court documents reveal he raped a woman and took nude photos of her.

Then a subsequent search by police found more pictures of nude women on his phone.

No date has been set for sentencing.
