A former employee at a Wisconsin assisted living facility is accused of secretly recording a sex act between her and an elderly man she scammed out of money.
Shatarra Rodgers of Brown Deer allegedly stole hundreds of dollars from a 78-year-old man’s bank accounts after his wife died late last year, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. She befriended the man before his wife died, and he would come to Heritage at Deer Creek, an assisted living facility located in New Berlin, to visit her.
At first, the alleged victim reportedly thought the 25-year-old was his friend, admitting to investigators he gave her money from time to time for errands. But then, large amounts of money began getting drawn through checks written from his accounts, according to a complaint obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The man reportedly confronted Rodgers who allegedly told him, "I needed it.” Then, she allegedly sent him a cellphone video she secretly made of him performing oral sex on her.
Instead of feeling blackmailed, the victim contacted the police.
An investigation revealed Rodgers allegedly stole over $1,000 from the victim’s account to pay for Amazon purchases, her rent, and even a spa visit, WITI in Milwaukee, Wisconsin reports.
Rodgers has been charged with identity theft for financial gain and theft of movable property, according to online court records. She is also charged with capturing an intimate representation without consent and a crime against an elderly or disabled person. She also faces a felony charge of bail jumping from a previous charge.
If she’s convicted she could face 30 years behind bars. It’s not clear if she has a lawyer who can speak on her behalf at this time.
