Guy Biggs and aggravated stolen valor perjury

| July 3, 2015

Guy Biggs

Someone sent us a link on Facebook about this Guy Biggs fellow. It seems that Mr Biggs was facing attempted first-degree murder charges in Henry County, Tennessee, where he had tried to lure his wife to her death.

When he went to court to answer for the charges, he made up some stories about his military experience and training to mitigate the charges. It worked for about a minute – he pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree murder and he was probably pretty proud of himself. Then the local constabulary looked into his military background and determined that he had lied to the court;

Biggs also filed a falsified military document to support his testimony, according to the release.

Biggs’ sentencing for attempted second-degree murder originally scheduled for May 8 has been reset for July 13, at which time prosecutors will present evidence regarding his testimony.

“This is an example of the stolen valor claims that occur throughout this country, and the Henry County Sheriff’s Office along with the district attorney’s office intend on prosecuting Guy Biggs for his actions to the fullest extent of the law,” the release states.

Biggs had claimed that he had seven years of service, but it turns out that he had a little more than a year. He also claimed that he had Purple Hearts and a Silver Star which was also untrue. Biggs told the judge that he had deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but he had never left the country.

All of my admiration and respect to the Henry County law enforcement officers for their diligence in this case. We’ve seen criminals walk because they lie to the courts and got away with it. People like Charles Chavous whose lies about his service were rewarded with a sentence of 5 years probation for what was actually 1st degree murder.

I guess my corollary that stolen valor indicates other, more serious crimes goes both ways. Military service mentioned during an investigation of more serious crimes is usually stolen valor or at least deserves investigation.

    It warms my dark heart to know that there still are people in the American Justice System that give a damn about doing their jobs RIGHT, fuck that lying-assed lump of moldy rat and roach shit to hell and back, let him be another addition to Bubba & Thor’s harem, they’ll straighten his ass out, knowhutimean?

  2. Tony180A says:

    This is so common it should be SOP that law enforcement at least do a basic vetting when presented with “My military training made me do it” excuse.

  3. AW1Ed says:

    That Tony180A, or the ubiquitous “…and then I caught the PTSD…” gambit.

  4. Sparks says:

    Shitbag! Hey Guy, enjoy your time “inside”, if you get my meaning. Bubba and Thor sure get it!

    Question for Hondo, who seems to know something about pretty much everything – WTF scale are they using in that booking picture? He’s ~84 somethings tall – and no way is it inches, because that’d make him a seven-foot tall freak with a two-foot head. If it’s centimeters, he’d be 2′ 8″. So what on earth is that scale?

    I work as a corrections officer for 2 years at a medium security prison. Every last member of the prison vets club was some sekrit skuirl type. Had one guy claiming to be a Ranger, so I asked his class number. Tells me class 92-12, disregarding that the number was backwards, I asked his graduation date. He couldn’t remember that, so I asked him for a single stanza of the Ranger creed, he claimed it was too long ago and he had forgotten. I busted him out to the whole yard, and the next day the vet club was memorizing the Ranger creed. I figure if ya are telling military stories in prison, or in court on your way there, you are full of shit

      Well done Smitty! Even in the joint there surely must be a set of self-imposed rules for vets that hang together. One that rejects B. S. artists. Hopefully he will have to form his own POSERS group now. Don’t guess you’ll be turning your back on this liar for a while. Vets normally stick together where ever they are. The POSERS probably find themselves picking up a lot more soap in the showers after getting caught in such a big one. Every prison needs another Ben Dover. Your last statement summed it up pretty well. Don’t be near him when they stick him for a blood sample. Might get a big brown stain in your face. My guess is the real vets will have some personal respect for you now that you had not seen before. Finally, out of curiosity, how many of the vets in the joint blame their predicament on PTSD?

    ” Military service mentioned during an investigation of more serious crimes is usually stolen valor or at least deserves investigation.”

    Hell, yes, it’s stolen valor! I think a reduced sentence would be considered personal gain, and would fall under the laws now.

  9. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    Hmmm.

    Might it be socially constructive to induce convicts to memorize the more useful bits of Military dogma, like the Ranger Creed, the Code of Conduct, and similarly cultural items?

    I think it a two edged sword. It might make them better men. However, if truly taken to heart, it will also make them more effective team-based combatants.

    And they call you “enemy”.

  10. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Hmmmmm…perjury. Who else do we know that’s looking at that charge, again?

  11. Green Thumb says:

    I hope they throw away the key on this maggot.

    That is one tall drink of water! Nearly 6’11” Mr. Biggs was appropriately named.
