A man indicted for the rape of a child in 1994 and on the run for 20 years changed his plea in a Miami County Common Pleas court Monday.
Roger Rogers III entered a plea of no contest to one count of rape. He was found living in Oklahoma after the prosecutor's office, using new software to track cold cases, located him.
Judge Robert Lindeman found Rogers guilty and ordered a pre-sentence investigation. His bond was continued at $250,000 cash.
Rogers is back in jail and will be sentenced on June 9. He faces three to 10 years in prison under Ohio law at the time of the offense.
The victim was in court, though she did not speak. She was 11 years old at the time of the rape in 1994. She will have the opportunity to speak at the sentencing if she chooses.
