Child porn suspect admits guilt

A Shingle Springs man suspected of possession of child pornography pleaded guilty last week and now faces up to a decade in prison.

Jeffrey Rogers, 60, pleaded guilty Nov. 9 before United States District Court Judge John A. Mendez, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. The guilty plea came as part of a plea agreement.

Rogers initially entered a not guilty plea in August when he was arrested and arraigned.

Per terms of his plea agreement, Rogers admitted to possessing computer discs and DVDs that contained more than 1,000 still images and more than 200 videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Court documents show Rogers began collecting child pornography more than 30 years ago when he received his first computer.

The images and videos he possessed reportedly depicted children from California, Washington, Georgia, Indiana, Pennsylvania and several foreign countries, the release states.

Rogers is scheduled to be sentenced the morning of Jan. 25, 2011. He faces the maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and a life term of supervised released.

According to court documents, Rogers will pay $3,000 to the photographed victims who submitted restitution claims.

The document makes special note of an unnamed victim belonging to a “Vicky series” of videotapes. Rogers’ pornography collection contained at least five videos of the victim from the “Vicky series.”

The case was investigated by the Sacramento Valley High Tech Crimes Task Force and the Department of Justice.
