Anchorage Police Department: Phillip Bigham convicted in sexual abuse of a minor investigation
“Every child deserves to be protected from sexual abuse and sexual exploitation,” said Assistant District Attorney James Klugman, who prosecuted the case. “Anyone who would prey on the innocent and vulnerable needs to understand: we do not and will not tolerate these heinous crimes. You will be caught, you will be prosecuted, and you will be held accountable.” Klugman thanked the Anchorage Police Department’s Special Victims Unit for their assistance investigating the case.

Superior Court Judge Jack Smith, who presided over the trial, scheduled Bigham’s sentencing for March 14, 2019. He faces a presumptive sentence of fifty to sixty years imprisonment. Bigham, who was on electronic monitoring release during the trial, was remanded into custody following the verdict. Judge Smith ordered him to be held without bail pending sentencing.
