Anonymous Commenter on Kelly G Rgoers Reports;
"Just one more example of the ridiculous system currently in place.
Why would the State Bar of Texas not temporarily suspend Rogers' license to practice law? More victims due to the inability of The State of Texas to take any action.
I have one correction, Rogers' faces 5 to 99 on the 1st Degree Felony charges. The District Attorney's Office can file a "Motion to Stack" or run the sentences consecutive as opposed to concurrent. Rogers', believe it or not, is eligible for probation--unfortunately.
Finally, Rogers' is aware that trying these cases in State Court is very very costly, timely and not something that STATE COURT generally does. These types of cases are usually tried by the Government.
If Rogers' makes a deal to plead, I suspect it would be 25 years and everything would run concurrently. However, at that point victims could make "impact statements" and protest his release to parole; of which I believe Rogers' would be eligible for Parole after 2 years or something like that.
Rogers' knows ALL of this and so does his lawyer who often tries these types of cases in Federal Court. The Collin County District Attorney's Office needs to only accept a plea of 50 years and our friend will spend his TDCJ time in a very rough place".
