Predatory sexual offender gets five life sentences in Stoddard County

A Dexter man received multiple life sentences after a jury recently found him guilty of child sex charges in Stoddard County. Jerry Pierce was sentenced to five consecutive terms of life imprisonment as a predatory sexual offender by Presiding Circuit Judge Robert Mayer. Mayer further set Pierce’s minimum parole eligibility at 30 years for each count, meaning that he will not be eligible for parole for 150 years. On March 29 a Stoddard County jury found Pierce guilty of four counts of first-degree statutory sodomy; one count of first-degree statutory rape; and one count of second-degree child molestation. The jury also found Pierce to be a “predatory sexual offender” due to a prior offense against another child in 1983 in the state of Michigan that was never prosecuted. Due to the sensitive nature of the crime and to protect the identity of the victims, no further details will be released.
