Criminal prosecution

Rogers faced 15 counts of sexual battery by an authority figure and 13 counts of statutory rape on February 4, 2005. The charges stemmed from her 3-month relationship with a teenage boy. She was 27 years of age at the time of the relationship. Following her arrest, she posted bail of $50,000. When originally charged, she pleaded not guilty.

Rogers later pleaded no contest to four charges of sexual battery by an authority figure on August 12, 2005, as part of a deal with the prosecution. Her sentence was 270 days (about nine months) in the Warren County jail in Tennessee. During an eight-year suspended sentence, she also had to serve a term of seven years and three months of Probation, surrender her teaching certificate, and register as a sex offender for life because sexual battery by an authority figure is "Violent sexual offense" under Tennessee law. The sentence not only prohibits her from profiting from the case (including books and movies), but also bars her from granting interviews for eight years. It also effectively ended her teaching career; most states will not grant a teaching license to a convicted felon.

Rogers was arrested again on April 24, 2006 on charges that she had sent text messages, nude photos, and sex videos of herself to the same boy while using her father's cellphone. She was also charged for communicating with the boy via blogs and a website. The judge ordered her to remain in jail until her next court hearing. On July 14, 2006 Rogers was sentenced to seven years in prison for violating her probation by sending explicit videos to her former victim and maintaining contact with him via online blogs. Rogers asked for mercy and apologized to her family and the teen's family, saying tearfully to the judge, "I have humiliated myself. What I did was wrong, I am willing to do anything to rehabilitate myself." She asked for local incarceration with therapy. Circuit Judge Bart Stanley denied her request saying, "You have done everything except show this court that you wanted to rehabilitate yourself." He revoked Rogers' probation and ordered her to serve the rest of a seven-year prison sentence at the Tennessee State Prison for Women.

She received two additional years of prison time in January 2007 after pleading guilty to sending nude photos of herself to the boy.

In June 2015 she was arrested again in a separate case after her release from prison. Allegedly she conspired with two current inmates to send cell phones into the state prison where she used to be housed. She is still in prison held on a 50,000 dollars bond , her arrest brought national attention to the problem of cellphone illegal contraband in prisons with all of its ramifications. This and a tv documentary (birds of prey) about her Sexual abuse made her a very famous example as the embodiment of teachers sexual abuse but the price was her liberty with many more years in jail without a serious prospective of liberty in the near future.
