Allan Todd Pisarich, BJJ black belt and former instructor at an Ocean Springs gym, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison – with 20 years to serve day for day.
According to Wlox, the 54-year-old pleaded guilty to the sexual battery and touching of a child for lustful purposes of two child victims, whi were between 10 and 14 years old at the time of the crimes.
He was convicted of six counts of sexual battery and three counts of touching a child for lustful purposes in the Circuit Court of Jackson County.
Pisarich was the owner of The Academy for Mixed Martial Arts when he was arrested, back in December 2017, in Santa Rosa, Florida.
Both counts of misconduct occurred in Ocean Springs, back on October 13, 2016.
District Attorney Angel Myers McIlrath told the media:
Todd Allan Pisarich lived two lives – a public life of a trusted community member and coach and a private life where he used young girls for his depraved sexual satisfaction.
Pisarich’s victims have been through hell: they endured the sexual abuse, faced hurdle after hurdle in the community and court system, and now live with the aftermath of the sexual abuse.
This sentence delivers justice to his victims and ensures he will never hurt another child again.
