Assistant Attorney General Scott Blake prosecuted this case.
PHOENIX - A Scottsdale man was sentenced to nearly 16 years behind bars for allegedly scamming women through online dating websites.
One of the victims invested $240,000 and another took out more than $100,000 in loans and gave the money to Pierce as an investment.
Pierce told victims he was a successful licensed stockbroker, but prosecutors say there's no record of Pierce being a licensed stockbroker.
Pierce was sentenced after pleading guilty to two counts of Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices.
