WEBER COUNTY, Utah, April 27, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A math teacher with the Granite School District was arrested Monday in Weber County.
Jared Biggs is suspected of sexual exploitation of a minor and enticing a minor, according to a news release from the Weber County Sheriff’s Office.
On March 5 of this year, WCSO detectives and the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force conducted an undercover operation targeting those who were seeking to entice minors over the Internet.
“During the course of the investigation, an adult male contacted Detective Will Smith, who was posing as a 13-year-old female,” the news release says. “The male, knowing the age of the decoy, requested sexually explicit photographs.”
The male also sent several sexually explicit photographs of himself.
