WINNER - A 40-year-old Winner rancher will spend 4.5 years in prison for aggravated incest,  according to the South Dakota U.S. attorney’s office.

Clinton Pierce was sentenced earlier this week by U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange.

According to his indictment, between September of 2013 and June of 2015, Pierce and the victim were checking cattle together and driving around the family ranch in Todd County. While in the vehicle, Pierce sexually assaulted the victim and the sexual touching happened for several minutes. The victim was under 18 years of age at the time.

This case was investigated by the state Division of Criminal Investigation and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Pierce was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
