Cristifer Biggs Mormon Sex Crime Case Summary

Cris Biggs was a 23 year old returned missionary, active LDS church member and BYU-Idaho student. He worked as a mental health tech and was studying to work with at-risk populations.

Cristifer Biggs Sex Crime Information

In March 2023, Biggs found a 12-year-old child on the website Omegle, according to a police probable cause affidavit. He convinced the child to FaceTime with him where he masturbated on camera and got the child to do the same, the affidavit said.

Biggs then tried to convince the child to meet up with him for in-person sex. After the child blocked him, he created several false phone numbers to continue contacting the child, according to the police statement.

One text message from Biggs to the child read in part, “It felt so good to c*m for you and I still want to have sex with you.” [censored with an * by FLOODLIT]

The police were notified and Biggs was arrested and charged with five felonies.

Cristifer Biggs Arrest Information

Bigg’s arrest took place on May 4, 2023, at his place of work, Highland Ridge.

At the time of Biggs’s arrest, he was engaged to be married.

Biggs told police “that his biological father [Robert William Biggs of Utah] is curretly [sic] in prison for ‘Child Pornography’ (Child Abuse Sexual Material) and that he himself is addicted to pornography, but no ‘gay or kid stuff’, and that his fiance has commented he is ‘going to end up like his father’,” according to the probable cause statement.

The police affidavit says Biggs lied twice to the arresting officer, saying he had chatted online in a sexual way with an adult woman, instead of with a child. When confronted about his lies, Biggs “nodded his head and confirmed this was true. Cristifer said he couldn’t remember the age earlier, which was why he lied to me, but that [the child] did tell him [the child] was 12.”
