The principal of Summerfield High School in Claiborne Parish was arrested Thursday for multiple sex and pornography offenses.
Brian Biggs, 54, who has been principal at Summerfield High since July 2018, was taken into custody at his home.
Louisiana State Police said Biggs is charged with computer aided solicitation of a minor, prohibited sexual conduct between educator and student, production of pornography involving juveniles, and 46 counts of indecent behavior with juveniles.
Biggs was booked into Claiborne Parish Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
A statement said that earlier this month, the Louisiana State Police Special Victim’s Unit received a complaint from concerned parents alleging Biggs acted inappropriately with their child on a social media website.
Through investigative means, Biggs was found to use the internet to engage in sexually explicit conversations, send sexually explicit materials, and to request inappropriate images. State Police obtained an arrest warrant for Biggs, along with a search warrant for his residence and social media accounts.
Troopers assisted by the Department of Homeland Security, Claiborne Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Bossier City Marshal’s Office executed the arrest and search warrants on Thursday morning.
Following the arrest, troopers made contact with Claiborne Parish School Superintendent William Kennedy. A secondary search was conducted at the school for other devices used by Biggs.
Louisiana State Police asked Summerfield parents to talk to their children. If they or someone they know had inappropriate contact with Biggs online or in person, they are asked to contact Louisiana State Police at 318-741-2733 or call Claiborne Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Prior to becoming principal, Biggs spent 10 years as supervisor of Secondary Education for the Claiborne Parish School Board. He is a native of Buras, LA and a graduate of Louisiana State University.
He was a former principal for the Plaquemines Parish School Board.
Summerfield is east of Haynesville, about 35 miles southeast of Magnolia.
