UPDATE (9:30)– On Thursday morning, 54-year-old Brian Biggs, the Principal of Summerfield High School, was arrested at his residence for multiple sex crimes.
“It’s really hard to believe and imagine,” said Michael Alderson, local.
Biggs was charged with computer-aided solicitation of a minor, prohibited sexual conduct between educator and student, production of pornography involving juvenile, and forty-six counts of indecent behavior with juveniles. All this comes after Louisiana State Police received a complaint from concerned parents alleging that the Summerfield High School Principal acted inappropriately with their students on a social media website.
“We’re going to investigate it to its full extent and make sure that there are not any extra victims out there and make sure everything is complete before we turn it over to the district attorney,” said Brent Hardy, Louisiana State Police Troop G.
According to the Louisiana State Police news release, Biggs was found to use the internet to engage in sexually explicit conversations and request inappropriate images. Biggs was booked into the Claiborne Parish Detention Center on a million-dollar bond.
“In the future, I hope nothing like that happens again,” said Alderson.
The Louisiana State Police is asking Summerfield parents to talk to their children about any inappropriate contact with biggs. Police want to find justice for every victim.
“It’s important for us to know if they are also a victim of Mr. Biggs. Other charges can come down the line and the kids might also need therapy for what they have experienced,” said Hardy.
Following the arrest, a secondary search was conducted at school for other devices used by biggs.
We have reached to the Claiborne parish superintendent. He said a comment would be posted on their Facebook page but it had not been posted at this time.

Following the arrest, Troopers made contact with the Claiborne Parish superintendent, and a secondary search was conducted at the school for other devices used by Biggs.
