    Tuscaloosa County woman holds man at gunpoint

    after finding him in underage daughter's bed room

    Ohio man arrested on sex charges | Local News | TuscaloosaNews.com

    TUSCALOOSA | Sheriff's deputies have charged an Ohio man with a series of sex-related crimes after he was found in the bedroom of a Tuscaloosa teen.

    Matthew Brandon Rogers, 28, faces charges of soliciting a child by computer, second-degree sexual abuse, enticing a child and possession of child pornography. He was being held Monday in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on $66,000 bail.

    Sheriff Ted Sexton is using Rogers' arrest as a reminder for parents to keep an eye on their children's Internet use.

    “When we talk about cybercrime, people want to talk about identity theft,” Sexton said. “But one of our mainstays are crimes against children, because there are sexual predators on the Internet.

    “We are urging parents to please have conversations with their children.”

    Sexton said Rogers was apprehended Sunday when the mother of a 14-year-old Duncanville girl found him in her daughter's bedroom.

    The mother held Rogers at gunpoint while she notified authorities. Deputies took him into custody when they arrived at the home.

    The sheriff said Rogers befriended the girl on an Internet chat room and late last week left his home in the Cincinnati metro area and drove to Louisville, Ky.

    In Louisville, Rogers left his vehicle at an airport and rented a car, which he drove to Tuscaloosa, Sexton said.

    On Sunday, the girl's father heard noises coming from the upstairs area and went to investigate. Finding nothing, he left for work.

    Later that day, the teen's mother came home and also heard noises, which led her to discover Rogers in the home.

    The teenager was not physically injured, the sheriff said.

    “This type of incident means we go way beyond Tuscaloosa County,” Sexton said. “This brings in every sexual offender and predator in the country, and even in Canada. This is why it's so important that parents talk to their kids.”

    Sexton said that sheriff's deputies, his office's sexual abuse investigator, the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit, the Tuscaloosa County Office of the District Attorney and the FBI are involved in the investigation.

    The sheriff declined to say whether authorities believe there are more victims, either in Alabama or elsewhere.

    “We're so used to guarding our children at the mall and at the fair ... but for one reason or another, parents tend to drop their guard as their children get older and have more access and savvy on the Internet ...,” Sexton said. “It's not just girls, it's boys, too ..., and it's led to young ladies coming up missing. That's why it's such an important issue.”

    Good for her
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Let me guess - that child pornography was probably pics that she took herself and sent to her new buddy.

    Agreed - kids really need guidance, some more than others.

    People will go to great lengths to protect their children.

    One day they may even go so far as to get personally involved in parenting.

    You mean sitting kids down in front of the TV isn't parenting? And here I thought MTV was guiding my kids in the right direction...
    One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.

    Speaking of MTV, that show "16 and Pregnant" shows products of this generation. Parents not talking to their kids and the kids having unprotected sex with losers...
