Serving his probation

  • August 2013 - Prosecutors and Galloway agreed to a release.  Judge Mueller ordered Biggs set free.

  • October 2013 -  submitted two urine samples that tested positive for methamphetamine and failed to report for testing on two other dates. 

  • November 21, 2013 - 9 days after pleading guilty. Biggs goes to jail.

A probation officer stated that Biggs has “a serious and persistent addiction and mental health issues going back to when he was quite young.”  Judge Mueller recommended that the U. S. Bureau of Prisons find a place for Biggs in treatment programs to address both problems.

Biggs told Judge Mueller: “It was truly a blessing from God” that FBI agents and Army and Navy investigators caught up with him. “My life has turned around 180 degrees.”

Biggs will serve less than a year for his crimes.

To this day, no supervisor or Army officer has been reprimanded, fired or charged with any crimes related to this case.  Where as the Whistleblowers have all been fired and removed from the Sierra Army Depot.
