American civilian found guilty on drug charges

Date Posted: 2008-07-31

A U.S. government civilian working on Camp Foster is presumably headed for prison after pleading guilty to using stimulants and smoking marijuana.

James R. Biggins pleaded guilty in a Naha District Court, admitting to the drug crimes. The 34-year-old American had worked in the Installation Personnel Administrative Center before being arrested last month after a drug raid at his off-base home. The Naha District prosecutor charged Biggins had been busted after a Japanese drug dealer was taken into custody.

Prosecutors are demanding Biggins receive a two-year jail term, with Yuki Mizuno telling the court he was in possession of more than a quarter-ounce of marijuana when Japanese police arrested him. A subsequent urine test revealed he had amphetamines in his body. Biggins confessed to both.

Biggins’ attorney, noting there have been no previous criminal complaints, is seeking a suspended sentence. The court was expected to sentence Biggins yesterday.
