Bail reduced in lifetime supervision


Bail was lowered Wednesday for a sex offender accused of violating his lifetime supervision.

Shannon Bigrigg told East Fork Justice of the Peace Tom Perkins that he’d been out of prison for five years and this was the first time he’d been in trouble with the law.

Bigrigg was convicted in 2004 of molesting a child under the age of 14 over the course of six years. He was sentenced to 6-20 years at the time and was paroled from prison in 2011.

Perkins reduced his bail to $2,500 cash or bond.

Bigrigg was one of two offenders arrested during Operation Diligence conducted June 6-8 by the Nevada Division of Parole and Probation and the U.S. Marshal’s Office.

According to documents filed in support of the charges, Bigrigg refused to respond to officers asking to conduct a home contact on June 7.

He’d allegedly admitted to using methamphetamine during previous visits, as well as the one that occurred last week.

Several electronic devices were seized from his home and vehicle as a result of the arrest.

The sweep resulted in a total of 94 contacts with supervised sex offenders including 79 home contacts, according to Officer Dave Gibson.

Additionally 47 surveillances of supervised sex offenders were conducted and two felony arrests were made, both for Violation of Lifetime Supervision; several electronic devices were seized for further investigation of potential violations of supervision.

Bigrigg is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on July 1.
