SALINE COUNTY, AR - Former Benton First Baptist Church minister David Pierce, who pleaded guilty
to four counts of sexual indecency with a child in 2009, will be released on parole.
Rhonda Sharp of the Arkansas Parole Board tells FOX16 that Pierce has been granted parole outside the state of Arkansas and must now move to a different state, where he will have to undergo sex offender evaluation and be classified within that state. Should Pierce ever decide to return to Arkansas, he will not be allowed to live within 50 miles of Saline County. Any contact with the victims or the families of the victims is forbidden.
FOX16 will have more information on this story as it becomes available.
