Man pleads guilty to toddler rape charges

(OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Okla.) One of the suspects in a 2020 child rape case pleaded guilty in Oklahoma County Court. 

Joseph Allan Rogers II (29) pleaded guilty to several crimes committed against a child, and an animal. 

He received a sentence of Life plus 20 years. Rogers’ wife, 27-year-old Cherokee White is also facing multiple charges in this case.

This investigation began in January 2020 after a Virginia ICAC unit forwarded images that were tracked to the Jones, Okla., area. During the investigation, OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit agents determined the images were of a 14-month-old child and were taken in November 2018. That led to arrest Joseph Rogers on May 29, 2020, the child’s father. A forensic investigation of electronics seized after Rogers’ arrest revealed additional crimes committed by both parents against the same child as the one from the 2018 pictures. Additionally, it was discovered the pair were violating a pet.

White was arrested on June 4, 2020. Her court date is set for later this year.

The children of Rogers and White were removed from the home at the time of their arrest.
