Corporal Thomas Biggs, a married British Army instructor, allegedly ra**ped a teenage recruit
The alleged victim of the instructor said she felt she had ‘no other choice’ after the army instructor told her ‘you will lose your job’ unless she obeyed. And the attack was only interrupted when Cpl Biggs received a call from his wife that distracted him, heard the Bulford Military Court in Wiltshire.
Wing Commander Michael Saunders, the prosecutor, said: ‘[Cpl Biggs] had pulled [the 18-year-old] out of bed in the early hours when he was drunk and ended up taking her to an isolated location and pressuring her to perform oral s**ex.
He told her that he would lose her job. He was a corporal instructor, she was a young recruit, he was drunk, she submitted to him but did not consent. ‘
The court heard that Cpl Biggs went to the recruit’s room in the early hours and woke her up by calling her name. “She described that she thought he had entered her room to give her the bad news, so she went with him into the hall,” said Wg Cdr Saunders.
She had her back to the wall next to the fire door and says he started talking to her about wearing a tight suit, a pajama that he had seen her wear a few days ago. He asked him if she was trying to impress him or some of the other corporals.
The prosecutor said they were interrupted by someone walking in the hall, so Cpl Biggs led her through a fire door where he proceeded to grope her. He then ‘pressured’ her to perform oral s**ex on him.
Wg Cdr Saunders continued: ‘She made a comment that he might lose his job and said that he replied’ no, he will lose his job. ‘Wg Cdr Saunders told the court-martial that the recruit managed to escape and returned to his room crying.
A video of the alleged victim’s interview with the military police was also shown in court. She told officers that she could smell the alcohol on Cpl Biggs’s breath after he woke her up and she followed him into the hallway.
She said: ‘I don’t know what was going on, I thought she was getting bad news. She was very close to me … she just looked around her and asked “Do you know why you are here?”
He was saying ‘I saw you in your tight gray pajamas, you’re trying to impress all the Cabo, trying to impress me.’ ‘I said ‘I don’t even know you’ ‘. He was talking about my features saying you have a really nice ass and boobs and stuff like that. ‘
She explained that a girl from her room came out and went to the bathroom, prompting Cpl Biggs to open a fire door and lead the recruit through the door.
She said, ‘He was saying, I want to see some part of him. He said I’ve seen you, do you want to see me? Obviously, I was like, no. ‘ She added: ‘I said this is stupid ‘, I repeated that you will lose your job, you will lose your job, but he kept saying no, you will lose yours’.
The alleged victim told the police that she obeyed because he told her that she could lose her job. She said, ‘That’s why I did it because at the time I was afraid that he would use it against me.
‘If he didn’t threaten me with the fact that he might lose my job … that really affected me, I just thought I wasn’t risking anything where I am now. ‘He is a corporal, he has power against me, I am just a recruit, I have nothing.’
The court heard that Cpl Biggs told military police that the couple ‘flirted’ in the hallway and that the recruit started kissing him before starting to give him oral s**ex.
When presenting evidence in court, the recruit denied it and said that she only complied because he had “threatened” her.
“It would never have gotten to this point if he wasn’t saying the things he was saying, bringing in work,” she said. “It was like, this is what is going to happen to you if you don’t move on.”
