MADISON (WKOW) — The Madison man who authorities say was involved in the disappearance of a Tennessee teen has agreed to a plea deal that would send him to prison for at least 10 years.
Bryan Rogers, 31, of Madison had been indicted by a grand jury for multiple charges related to transporting a minor in interstate commerce with the intent that the minor engage in sexual activity, as well as production of child pornography and making false statements to an FBI agent.
Rogers agreed to plead guilty to one of the counts in the indictment and faces a minimum of 10 years, up to a maximum of life in prison. He also could be fined $250,000.
The other charges would be dismissed, according to the plea agreement.
Authorities say Rogers met the teen online. They say the girl told Rogers she was being sexually abused and he asked her to send him video evidence, which she did.
Investigators say Rogers then went to Tennessee and brought the teen to Madison.
Authorities say Rogers’s mother was unaware of the teen’s presence in her home over the two weeks the teen stayed there until investigators found her and Rogers was arrested.
