Eastern Oregon man gets 212 years for abusing girl


PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — An eastern Oregon man has been sentenced to 212 years in prison for sexually abusing a young relative.

The East Oregonian newspaper reports that 40-year-old Jeffrey Pierce of Milton-Freewater received the sentence Friday in a Pendleton courtroom.

A jury in January convicted the former gun shop owner on 36 counts of sexual abuse and sodomy.

Authorities say Pierce abused the now 17-year-old girl over a period of five years beginning in 2008.
