Prior sex offender charged in abuse, rape case

A prior sex offender is being charged with nine felonies after he reportedly abused two autistic children and raped a woman.

Allen Steven Stuart, 33, of Mineral Point, is being charged with felony rape in the first degree, a class B felony of assault in the first degree, two felony counts of armed criminal action, two class D felony counts of abuse or neglect of a child, two felony counts of unlawful use of weapon, and a class D felony count of domestic assault in the second degree.

According to a probable cause statement, on July 10 a Washington County deputy was called to the 600 block of Commercial St. in Mineral Point for a physical altercation between Stuart and his girlfriend and her two autistic sons, both younger than 13 years of age.

It was reported that the altercation started when the boys wouldn’t do what Stuart asked them to do, so he started throwing objects at the them. He reportedly struck the youngest one in the leg above his knee with a hammer twice. When the older boy tried to defend his brother, Stuart supposedly threw a knife at him, missing his head by inches.

The boys’ mother heard yelling outside and called both boys into the house to avoid further conflict. The mother told the deputy that Stuart followed her in to her bedroom, where he struck her several times in the face with an open hand.

Stuart then reportedly put both his hands around the woman’s neck and started choking her. She said she was gasping for air and Stuart said he would kill her and her kids. He then pushed her onto the bed and forcibly removed her shorts.

According to the court documents, Stuart then began raping the woman while she screamed for him to stop. The woman’s older son kicked in the door when he heard his mother’s screams and saw Stuart sexually assaulting her. The boy then screamed he was going to call the cops.

Stuart apparently followed the boy out of the room and into the living room while threatening both him and his brother, saying he would kill the cops and both of them. Stuart then allegedly hit the boy several times, then started started strangling him.

The boys’ grandmother, who also lives in the home, saw what took place in the living room. Stuart allegedly told the family several times that if he was arrested he would kill them when he got out of prison.

Stuart is a prior registered sex offender for charges out of Iron County involving children ages 1 and 3 years old.

He was charged in 2004 for abuse of child and again in 2003 twice for endangering the welfare of child.

Stuart is being held in the Washington County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
