Tennessee man found guilty on sex charges in Burke

MORGANTON A Tennessee man was sentenced to at least 32 years in prison Friday after being found guilty on six felony sex charges.

Mat Dallas Pierce, 48, of Butler, Tenn., will be at least 80 years old when released, prosecutors said.

Pierce was found guilty by a jury on two counts of rape of a child, one count of first-degree sex offense, and three counts of indecent liberties with a child.

Prosecutors accused Pierce of sexually abusing girls who were 9 and 10 years old at the time of the offenses, in 2009 and 2010.
