Pierce Hunter did a plea deal in a felony sexual assault case. He too will be sitting next to minors and others that will not know his crime-because he is anonymous in AA meetings. These sentencing mandates to AA and NA for sexual predators happen daily across our nation. AA/NA and Judges KNOW minors attend these meetings and encourage it. Also AA and NA encourage this practice by soliciting our teens, children and young adults to come to felon filled AA meetings.

Swimmer charged in sexual assault gets probation in plea deal Deal keeps victim from having to testify
|by Glenn Wohltmann Pleasanton Weekly Staff|
A 21-year-old Pleasanton man and former swimmer at UC Davis has been convicted of a felony in connection with an attack on a young woman in her dorm room last year. Pierce Hunter accepted a plea deal that spared the victim from having to testify and avoided a jury trial. Hunter pleaded no contest – admitting that the prosecution had enough evidence to convict him but not admitting guilt – to a single felony count of dissuading a witness after threatening the victim following the attack.
As part of the plea deal, Hunter was ordered to serve 150 days in the county jail; a charge of sexual battery will remain on hold for the five years Hunter will be on probation following his stay in jail. During his probation, he will have to register as sex offender, receive sex offender counseling, and attend meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous. The sexual battery charge will be dismissed if Hunter successfully completes probation. Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Clint Parish told the court the attack took place in January 2010. “Hunter entered the dorm room of the victim. According to the victim, after a short discussion, Hunter took off most of his clothes and began to force himself on her,” Parish told the judge. “During the struggle, Hunter took the victim’s pants off of her as well as her underwear. Because of the vast difference in size between Hunter and the victim, he was able to keep her pinned down while he continued to assault her.”
