MADISON (WKOW) — A Madison man formally entered a guilty plea for his role in the disappearance of a Tennessee teenager.
According to federal court records, Bryan Rogers entered the plea Wednesday to a charge of taking a minor across state lines to engage in sexual activity.
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.
Rogers had previously agreed to a plea deal with federal prosecutors, so three other counts were dropped. As part of the deal, Rogers faces a minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison.
He’ll be sentenced on September 13.
