Rogers sentenced to two years for statutory rape
Placeholder Image
Having sex multiple times over the course of a weekend with a 14-year-old girl will cost a local teen two years in prison and what could be a lifetime of listing himself on the state’s sexual offender registry.The defendant, Ricky Lee Rogers, 19 at the time of the crime, entered guilty pleas to three counts of statutory rape and was directed by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to serve two years in prison. He will be credited for the 147 days he has already served, which, calculating good behavior credits, should have him close for release on time-served. He will also be required to list himself with the sexual offender registry which tracks the locations of convicted sex offenders.
