Big Stone Gap man sentenced to 30 years in prison for child sex crimes. 31-year-old Christopher Davis Crowder was sentenced in connection to multiple charges of indecent liberties with a minor and aggravated sexual battery. The court decided to sentence Crowder to ten years in prison for each of indecent liberties charges and 20 years with ten suspended for his aggravated sexual battery charge. Crowder will also have ten years of supervised probation following his release. In July 2021, he became involved in the lives of a family friend and her children, offering help with transportation. Crowder did it all to gain access and trust in an effort to sexually molest and victimize young boys, according to Wise County Commonwealth's Attorney Steven Davis. He remains in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail, awaiting transfer to a Virginia Department of Corrections facility.
