PERRY, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a hair stylist who used to own a Centerville salon has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted of molesting two teenage boys and sexually exploiting a third boy.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1sFqNDC) that 35-year-old Matthew Caleb Pierce on Tuesday was given the 30-year prison term with no possibility of parole.

Prosecutors said Pierce engaged in sex acts with one teenager while the boy was under the influence of alcohol Pierce had given him.

Last month, a Houston County jury found Pierce guilty of engaging in sex acts with another teenager who was under the influence of prescription drugs Pierce gave him.

During the trial, Pierce testified that the teenagers, all 14 at the time, made up the stories to avoid getting into trouble.
