GALVESTON – A Galveston County jury sentenced Aaron Quigg, 21, to five years’ community supervision after finding him guilty on November 9, 2017, of online solicitation of a minor.  

Quigg’s jury trial began on Tuesday, November 7th, in the 212th District Court. During the trial, Crimes against Children Prosecutor Beverly Armstrong and felony prosecutor Ross Hill presented witnesses and evidence detailing the crime. The evidence showed that the Internet Crimes against Children (ICAC) task force conducted a multi-day undercover sting operation focused on identifying and arresting individuals engaged in exploiting children.

On November 16, 2016, Galveston Police Department Detective Gaspard, while working undercover, received communication from Quigg. During this communication, Quigg engaged in sexually explicit conversations and agreed to meet with the intent to commit sexual acts with a minor. Over 400 electronic messages were entered into evidence detailing the conversation.  Quigg was 20 years old at the time of the offense.

After two days of testimony and arguments, the jury retired to deliberate and returned Thursday morning with a guilty verdict. The punishment phase immediately followed. During punishment, the State presented testimony of League City Police Department Detective Austin Frakes. Detective Frakes described how often these offenses occur in the real world and the effect they have on real children.  He further described how undercover stings like the one leading to Quigg’s arrest are an effective preventive tool to combat the issue.

The jury retired again to deliberate on punishment. Quigg faced a penalty range of two years to twenty years in prison with the possibility of receiving community supervision, because he had no prior felony convictions. The jury returned a verdict that Quigg should be placed on probation for five years. Quigg will also be required to register as a sex offender each year for the next 10 years.

Quigg was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Beverly Armstrong and Ross Hill in the 212th District Court, with Judge Patricia Grady presiding. The investigation was conducted by the Houston Metro Internet Crimes against Children Taskforce with the assistance of local agencies, including Galveston Police Department, League City Police Department, Pearland Police Department, Webster Police Department, Homeland Security, Harris County Sheriff’s Office, La Marque Police Department, and Houston Police Department.

You gotta be kiddin' me!

With people who continue to give the undeserved chances like this, the evil is never going to slow down or stop.

This was a chance to send the message that we NORMAL PEOPLE, don't want these sickos in our communites or around our children.

But, instead, the say "Oh, Poor Thing, he doesn't have a record so let's not taint his name". BULL SPIT, I say!

He, and others like him, will just laugh and continue to do the same kinda thing, over and over, again!

He needed to be punished...SEVERELY... before he gets a chance to do the same thing again, or worse.

Did those idiots not have children, or what?

I wonder how they would have felt if one of their children or one they loved had been molested.

We have to stop being so easy on the criminals.

The 'softies' need to be more like Trump. (in most ways ;-))


On another note...if you have never heard this, perhaps you would be interested in hearing it.

It's good.
