Man Charged After Asking For Video Of Rape Before Helping Teen
A man has been arrested for exploiting a 14-year-old girl who asked him for help from her abusive step-father.
A 14-year-old Tennessee girl asked a man identified as Bryan Rogers to help her from her stepfather who had been raping her. He agreed as long as she sent him a video of the act and then never alerted police.
The girl said she told Rogers that she told her mother about the abuse, but she didn’t believe her. She also added, “I can’t just stay here Bryan I’m begging u plz.”
“I know you don’t want to do it but I don’t exactly want to see your dad rape you either,” Rogers wrote, in the messages obtained by the FBI. “But we need clear video evidence.”
She then wrote back, “Bryan do u understand how hard that would be though.”
He wrote back, “But understand that I can get in a hell of a lot of trouble for harboring you. Unless you can prove what he did they will just release you back to him if we get caught.”
The girl later escaped until she was found 2 weeks later hiding in Rogers’ home.
Her stepfather has been charged with rape, while Rogers is currently in jail and faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison for exploiting a minor.
