Court date reset for Wisconsin man charged in sexual exploitation case of Madisonville teen


The federal court date for a man charged with sexual exploitation involving a 14-year-old Madisonville girl has been reset.

Bryan David Rogers, 31, was set to appear in a federal court in Madison, Wisconsin Thursday. The date has been reset with a new date yet to be officially scheduled. 

Rogers is charged with sexual exploitation of a child after a U.S. Attorney says he knowingly persuaded a 14-year-old Madisonville girl to engage in sexually explicit conduct in order to produce video evidence of it, then transported the video from Tennessee to Wisconsin.

An affidavit says Bryan Rogers, 31, met the teen through an online game. The teen told Rogers she was being sexually assaulted. The affidavit then says Rogers persuaded the girl to engage in sexually explicit conduct and make a video recording, which she then sent to Rogers.

Rogers is then accused of traveling to Tennessee and then returning to Wisconsin with the girl.

The Monroe County teen went missing on January 13 before being found in Wisconsin over two weeks later has since returned to Tennessee.

This is a developing story and we’ll continue to update the details as they become available.
