A Rineyville man is facing two felony charges after he was arrested Tuesday night by Kentucky State Police for sex offenses involving minors.
Christopher Andrew Rogers, 28, is charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy with children under the age of 12 — Class A felonies punishable by 20 to 50 years, or life in prison, if convicted.
One child said there was sexual contact from Rogers “multiple times” and one child said the reported incidents happened at “Chris’ house” but couldn’t recall when the abuse alleged happened.
Rogers was stopped in the driveway of his residence by KSP and investigators said they smelled marijuana coming from Rogers’ vehicle. Rogers told police he had a “small amount of marijuana” in the vehicle. KSP reported finding two “marijuana pipes that were loaded with marijuana” in the center console as well as a handgun.
He also is charged with misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Rogers was taken to KSP Post 4 to be interviewed about the allegations. Rogers is being held in lieu of a $105,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center.
He is scheduled to appear Aug. 21 in Hardin District Court.
