Staff Sgt. Rogers goes to Leavenworth
[Mil.com] RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany -- An airman who used hidden cameras to film women as they undressed, bathed or used the toilet while staying in his home was sentenced to five years in jail Thursday by a court-martial here.

Staff Sgt. Andrew P. Rogers admitted at a general court-martial this week that, between November 2015 and April 2018, he used cameras hidden in alarm clocks and smoke alarms and set up in the bathroom and guest bedroom of his off-base house, to film more than half a dozen women who stayed with him or house-sat for him while he was away. The cameras were angled to capture the women's private areas as they engaged in intimate activity such as bathing or undressing, the court heard.

Some of the devices were motion-activated and connected to WiFi, allowing Rogers to view live-stream video of the women from wherever he happened to be. Other videos were saved on data cards, and Rogers would view them later on his laptop or phone, the court was told.

One of the women, who met Rogers through social media, told the court she was excited to stay at his home with her sister-in law last year, to feed Rogers' fish while he vacationed in Bali.

Rogers encouraged the women to use the bathtub and bath salts that he had, but told them not to use the bathroom's separate shower, the woman recalled being told.

She soon learned the reason for the no-shower instructions, and her discovery unraveled a dirty secret that this week ended Rogers' promising Air Force career.

Rogers pleaded guilty to six counts of indecent recording, an Article 120c violation under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. He was found guilty of a seventh specification of the same offense, but not guilty of two further, similar counts and one specification of indecent exposure.

In addition to sending him to jail for five years, military judge Lt. Col. Willie Babor gave Rogers a dishonorable discharge and demoted him to E-1. The stiff sentence was just shy of the six years requested by government prosecutors.

Rogers used his "deceptively friendly personality" to lure seven unsuspecting women to his home and then "shattered their trust one by one," recording their intimate moments to satisfy his sexual perversions, said Capt. Ryan Schmidt, one of the military prosecutors.
